Description

In the world of Hobo's, a Redball is a fast train to the next jungle. In this jungle, however, Redball is 45' of beautiful stone set at a slightly overhanging angle. The bouldery crux comes early with a soft dead point to an imperfect crimp, coupled with some serious high stepping which may make this train hard to catch for some. The quality of the stone is as good as dacite gets.

Location

This line is hard to miss as you get to the wall. Look for a beautiful "pillar" formation with a stunning tan streak that splits the first 20'. Redball is on the right hand side of this streak.

Protection

4 bolts, 2 bolt anchor with ClimbTech Mussy Hooks.

This route had the hardest moves of any I did at the Jungle. It is rated 11- but it just didn't fit me at all and I worked the moves on TR after the redpoint. This thing is on you from start to finish. Jul 9, 2012

I do have a tendency to search out the tall boy lines. However, I climb with some powerful "shorties" and I am always amazed. Shorty beta stays left, avoiding the curved finger bucket out right... Jul 9, 2012

11c is the ranking I give. Bold move to clip the second bolt. Wonderfully set route. May 15, 2013

Chipped foot? The last time I was on this a month back or so I noted that the two crux crimps are changing in size. One felt bigger, and the other smaller than last summer. Unfortunately one or the other gets used as a foothold as you move past the crux. Aug 6, 2013

"Redball Biscuits"
Redball links with upper half of High Hanging Biscuits pretty reasonably (5.6) for a longer variation. Extend the anchor and next bolt with runners and continue with HHB. Aug 25, 2013

This is a great route that to me felt solid 5.11. However I like that the route is rated 11-, as this keeps with the NAZ tradition. Perhaps someday it will be a 5.9! Aug 9, 2015

Accord. I don't care what things are rated anymore. I just wanna climb good routes. This is a good route. BTW I am 5' 5" and it doesn't matter. Whether I can climb a route or not is usually not dependent on this. More likely it is a function of skill, motivation and willingness to commit, within my limits of course.... Aug 24, 2015

I here ya! I'm usually within a couple letter grades.... And that's usually good enough for me. This route demands a couple hard crimp moves, but they are cool moves for sure. Aug 24, 2015

Sure does... & if you keep climbing the holds appear.. Aug 26, 2015
