Description

Start on Doctor's Orders, and climb the first three bolts. Traverse left with two bolts for protection before doing the top of Straight Man.

There was an old route here with cold shuts that was long abandoned. It was refitted with new hardware and a bunch of cleaning!

Location

Start on Doctor's Orders, the two short, easy routes with steep starts and slabby finishes.

Protection

11 bolts plus anchor.

There is a loose block at the top of the route maybe right before the last bolt or just after that usually is used for a left hand gaston but then turns into an undercling then to a possible foot. I always thought it was safe until I noticed a new crack in it and now sounds pretty hollow. It's about 10 inches wide by 5 inches tall maybe? Just let your belayer know. Fun route though. Good for new leaders. Sep 29, 2015

This route only gets 1 star in the guidebook, but...I have been here numerous times with intermediate climbers this fall, and they all love this route. It is long, the crux is cool and near the top, and the climbing is fun. It still needs a bit of brushing in the crossover from Doctor's Orders but is a really enjoyable route. If you like moderate routes, get on it. Thanks to Mike for this one! Sep 29, 2013
