Description [Edit]

Four mild bulges are each protected by a bolt. The climbing gets easier as you go. Past the 5th bolt the climbing turns to 5.0 for the last 50 ft to the top.

This route was established after the publishing of Brad Young's excellent 2007 guidebook. To check out more new routes at Pinnacle visit the Mud and Crud website. mudncrud.com/forums/index.p…

Location [Edit]

Located to the right of the center route on the first sister. Look for a new bolt about 15 feet up.

Protection [Edit]

5 bolts

Backed off this; pulled an embedded pebble off getting to the first bolt, then looked like another one had recently gone right where it would have been a good foot for the crux bulge, and the bottom of the nice toe divot that was left was very hollow sounding when tapped. All this combined with the possibility of a nasty fall onto the slab below if you blew the move meant I didn't want to do it that day. I'll come back sometime... Apr 30, 2018
