This is a fun short bouldery climb, with the real climbing down low, moving underneath and over the roof. The crux is at the second bolt, either right before or right after clipping, depending on your beta.


Starts just to the right of Tall Man Simplex, at the right end of the huge roof. Traverse left under the roof to a bolt near some pockets.


3 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor

This climb didn't seem dramatically more difficult than Tall Man Simplex right next to it, probably only a few grades tougher. Definitely recommend top roping first or stick clipping the 2nd bolt, since the first bolt won't do much for you if you fall coming up onto the face.

Both Herpes Simplex and Tall Man Simplex are worth checking out on Shady Rock if you like bouldering, but also want to clip a draw or two. Oct 3, 2016
