The crux is about 35 feet up passing an overhang on the left. After the crux it's 25 ft up and to the right of sustained 5.11 climbing. This route has two new bolts I hope don't get removed making it much safer. The last move to a solid two bolted anchor is also a crux move.


On the VD Wall just left of Lower Bolt Route and just right of Tree Corner. Rap off to exit.


Was 7 bolts. As of 11/8/2014 has 9 bolts. I hope it doesn't change. This route has 6 brand new bolts on it. Solid bolted anchor 2 bolts.

Jeffrey Constine added in 2015: "I just rebolted it with this Chad Parker guy, but we called Malcom first and he asked us to remove all the run outs on it, so we did, now has 9 bolts. Super fun now, a solid sport route. Still 11b/c."

Rupert The Bear is now Re-bolted with 1/2" Dia bolts.
The runout has been removed at the start and the ending with the Malcom Balls FA guy's blessing. Dec 18, 2017
