Description

The moves at the first 4 bolts are thin and the feet are hard to come by, no doubt the crux comes right off the deck. The route becomes easier, and it backs off for 20 feet. The final 3 bolts have thin, hard crimping again, there is an awesome pinching on long horizontal rail at the top out.

There is a total of nine bolts, with 2 chain anchors. The anchors are not easily reached from the top of the crag, meaning a TR is challenging without first leading.

Location

1/4 mile East of Pinecliffe (top of hill) there is a parking area with a lager rock outcropping (North Side of Road). Park here, there are only about 6-8 parking spots. There is a deep slot splitting 2 rock outcropings, this slot heads down to the river and ultimately the main climbing area at Pinecliffe along the train tracks. This is right after heading down toward the river, on the right side (West-facing). There are 2 bolted routes, Can You Dig It is the first bolted route and right of John Shaft.

Have some holds broken off on this rig? Right off the deck was pretty breezy. 2-4 bolts seems highly improbable. Nov 20, 2016
