Description

Route is mostly 5.5 difficulty, up until the crux, a short chimney above the the currently overwhelming blackberry bush, which earns it a 5.6. Up through the chimney and an easy, bouldery finish. (This route is barely climbable in it's current state; the bush needs to be removed).

Location

This route is located just to the left of the Lazarus 5.9 in the obvious line curving up from the left. Start under Lazarus and follow crack for protection.

Protection

Trad to 2.5 inches. Can be top-roped with long runners

Skip this and here's why: I clipped the first 5.8 bolt on the thorny traverse to the 5.6, but the thorns stabbed me in the back, the more I moved the more they dug into my soft flesh. And I couldn’t reach behind my back to free myself. Lots of wiggling in different directions. Finally freed myself. Placed one tiny cam. Got to the bush, which IMO is the crux just to get around it. I pushed into the slab as I rearranged all the thorny branches. Ate a couple blackberries. Wedged between the rock and bush and breathed sigh of relief to be out of the thorns. But then there was only shitty rock to place the tiniest cam I had in a shallow off width crack. Run out the rest of slabby 5.0 (not sure what the chimney description above is all about). In all I was only able to place 2 pieces of pro in supposedly 40 feet. Sep 12, 2018

Well, it made for a good story anyway. Thanks Tiffany.

I think it also a good example of the general rule: the easier the route, the harder it is to clean (at least in these parts). On the other hand, a well-cleaned easy route can end up being the most well-used route. Sep 12, 2018 · Temporary Report
