Description

A bindlestiff is a hobo who carries his belongings wrapped in a bundle attached to a stick carried over his shoulder. This route opens with a steep face start and slab cruise past a few clips to the base of the corner crack. Jam, stem and layback your way up the hands and thin hands crack.

Location

Follows the obvious slab prow and corner right of the Lucky Streak area.

Protection

A few stoppers, cams #0.4 to #3 C4, with maybe extra in the thin hand sizes. An optional small cam placement can protect the boulder problem start.

Great route, but last weekend (end of October 2017) the crack was completely swarming with what looked like grayish yellow jackets? I'm not sure exactly what they were but they looked like the flyin' stingin' kind... bee warned. Nov 3, 2017
SO MANY BATS! there must have been a hundred bats tucked up in the crack. I could see them writhing around and all the ledges were covered, covered, in guano.

Other than that, a great climb. Maybe bring a respirator. Jul 1, 2017

the first 4 bolts of Railway Runaway make for an excellent alternate start Apr 25, 2017

I think the beginning is the hardest climbing on this whole route. Easily v2. Jun 15, 2016

Bouldery to slab to 40 feet of crack climbing bliss. This climb is fantastic and underrated. The situations are stellar for the grade. Jun 30, 2013

Funky boulder problem start... Dirty alternate start to the Left? Once in the crack proper it seemed the best rock wanted to accommodate #1 camalots. I easily would have placed three. Didn't use the #3. Good stemming stances in the steep part. A crack jug haul.... May 18, 2013

Rock will likely get a little better over time as it sees more ascents, but it is fairly good already. Good jams up high mixed with face-holds and layback moves. Start is actually easier than it looks. Aug 14, 2012

A fun, solid, hand jamming line that is very clean and very sweet. Great feet through the overhanging bit and solid pro. Jul 22, 2012
