Route 66 starts by reaching above a cave and hoisting yourself up on good holds but not much for feet (5.10). Once over the cave, a short section of easy climbing will take you to a large ledge and an anchor. Clip the anchor with a runner and continue into the meat of the climb. Mostly good crimps and edges on a slightly overhanging face will generate a healthy pump if the grade is near your limit. There is a good rest high up which will allow some recovery. Get back what you can because there's still some hard climbing left to go and not-so-obvious sequences. A 60m rope will get you back to the ground with a couple feet to spare.


Route 66 is on the left face of the Mordor Wall (shared with No Nuts and Dad's Nuts). Look for the short cave and a line of bolts above. Get's more shade than most of the climbs at Ozone.


Bolts. Bring a runner to clip the midway anchor or back-clean it.

The upper crux is awesome. Well protected, very crimpy, and slightly overhung, and sustained as far as Ozone routes go. The climbing up to the first anchor is forgettable, but the upper half makes up for it! Probably my favorite 5.11 crux at Ozone. Apr 10, 2015
The route to the left is more like 10.c.....IMO. Bring some mid size gear or its a little run to each bolt. Fun climb. Jul 3, 2014

The next (bolted) line to the left is Getting Your Kicks. Loose rock and 5.11a.

What is the nice bolted climb to the left of Route 66? It seems to go at 5.10- or so. Sep 11, 2013

One of the best 5.11's at Ozone!
