Description

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

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

5 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.

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

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
