Access Issue: Bridges Out! IMPORTANT LADWP NEGOTIATIONS!! Details


Technical, thin, off-vertical face climbing on good quality rock.


Located to the right (downstream) of Drill Sergeant (5.8 crack/dihedral) and Corporal Clinger in the center of a sweet varnished face. Continue to the anchors at the top of the formation. Rap on shuts.


8 Bolts and shuts.

Fun climb. Thin techy climbing on credit cards. Feb 19, 2015
Not one of my best route names. Called it this because I came down with bronchitis during a winter trip to Mammoth and felt like crap the entire time. But managed to do some climbing as well as skiing. Hacked and spit the whole time. Jul 12, 2017
Was just on this yesterday with Darrell and Marty. Was just thinking about the route name? Great to get the history Dave. Great route!

Any more pics Dave? Would love to hear more about the route being put up. Mar 16, 2018

This seems like a "forgotten" classic. I really like this route, used to do it routinely BITD. After a long stretch of not climbing in the Gorge finally got back around to it again. Still just as good as it ever was. Good techy, fun movement, and the rock is very good. What's not to like?

The shuts have been replaced with mussies. Better not needing to hang there and thread, or using the rat's nest of fixed biners that were on the closed shut. Much nicer now. Mar 16, 2018
