Description

From the 2011 guidebook by Jon Crefeld:

"Up the right facing outcrop."

Make a couple of short awkward moves onto a ledge and then easier moves take you to the top.

Location

Furthest right route when facing the Good Book Wall.

Protection

5 Bolts, Bolted Anchor

Interesting climb. I don't know if something broke off, but I wouldn't want to lead it, with the crux between 1st and second bolt, you would deck if you fall. Definitely easier if you are tall. Dec 4, 2017

Rock is a little loose at the base. Pulled a plate size rock off the wall at the start. Have belayed set up under overhang for protection and wear a helmet! Oct 11, 2017

My current understanding is that the steel bolts and hangers on this route are a holdover from before this area was legally opened for climbing. They have not been approved (or disapproved) by the Torne Valley Climbers Coalition, and are not maintained by the TVCC or Harriman Park, so whether or how to use them or not is your own responsibility.

Definitely didn't feel like a 5.9 after a couple key holds broke off. I thought it actually felt harder than the Nephalim right next to it. There's a bomber #2 Camalot placement in the horizontal crack under the roof to protect the move right before the first bolt. Aug 2, 2016

Cruised through this early in the summer, and then came back and struggled for a long time trying to get up on the roof - either something broke off or I'm getting stupider... both definitely possible. Felt more like a 9+/10a this time. Nov 30, 2015

To me seemed like one strenuous move with some thought required for how to set up for it. May 28, 2015
It's definitely brainier and I think there is a good possibility some holds broke since it's original grade. But, I have been told that there is an easy way... Just have to figure it out. Apr 8, 2014

I believe this route is actually a harder climb than the 5.10 next to it on the left with a more strenuous stance to clip the second bolt. Nov 24, 2013
