Description [Suggest Change]

The crux of this route is on the slab above the highest overhang. My partner and I both thought it was easier than it is rated in D'Antonio's guide (where it is called "Tweaked"). We think it is an 11a, not a 12a. We thought it was easier than Road Kill to the left, with which it shares an anchor. This builds up your confidence after struggling on Roadrash which is supposedly easier.

Location [Suggest Change]

This route is to the right of Road Kill and is the furthest right bolted route on the rock. There is a large boulder at the base to belay from.

Protection [Suggest Change]

5 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.

FA Bob D'Antonio & Greg Hand. This is the right hand route on the rock, and I thought we rated it 5.10. This should be named Road Rash. Apr 30, 2014

The book misdirects all 3 of the climbs on the right side of the rock here...but yeah, the right-most bolted line is a moderate 5.10. Aug 29, 2015
