The Boogieman is another bouldery sport piece on this unforgiving chunk of rock. Climb the 1st 2 bolts of Heaven before breaking right on to the steep arete. Some very strenuous moves as you tackle this obvious feature passing the "goldfish" hold. Don't let down your guard until you are clipping the anchors.

This route is the start to a couple of link ups: Freezer Burn (5.13c) starts on Boogieman route, and traverses right under the roof to finish all the way over on Journey to a Mushroom Planet. You can also finish on Parallel Universe to make it a little easier. Steady Slobin (5.14b) climbs Parallel's start and finish up this route's arete.

The long crux sequence of The Boogieman:


Start on Heaven then up the arete between Heaven and Parallel Universe.


5 bolts to anchor.

This always felt hard for the grade. I think it's a lot harder than the other 13c's in the area (though there aren't that many of that grade, surprisingly). Whoever shot the video of Boogieman called it 13d, and I wouldn't really argue. Jan 11, 2013

I'm not sure if this is true as I only recently tried the route but I heard that the "goldfish hold" had broken and that it had gotten harder. If this is true it would support the 5.13d grade. It probably wouldn't change the grade of Steady Slobbin. Feb 4, 2013

The left hand crimp after the goldfish hold broke after the guidebook was published. It changed from a decent 3 finger edge to a heinous 2 finger edge.

This up's the difficulty to around 5.13c or d.

One of the best routes at the cliff! Apr 7, 2013

ok... ignore my above comment haha... Got back on it today and found plenty of difficulty.. I must have been having a pretty strong day last time... the reach to the gold fish hold gave me the most trouble this time (though I did figure out a way), The rest just felt like sustained difficulty. I don't do the last move how he does in the video. I stay more left and climb the last move on the face so I'm standing on the gold fish.

All in all seems like 13d makes a lot of sense. Nov 29, 2016
