One of the better beginner sport routes at Upper. It has one long clip but a short crux sequence. Better than it appears from the ground!

The first move can be 5.8 or 5.10 so if you find yourself cursing a lot check your beta. :)

Make a tricky move to get off the ground and gain a nice jug. After the second bolt make a few committing moves to a good hold before traversing right and up on a big rail. Make an interesting mantle and wander up an atypical slabby schist face on excellent rock to a huge sloping belay ledge with a two-bolt anchor directly below Doug the Subway Fugitive.


Start at a line of glue-in bolts about 50' left of Fresh Meat.


Fully bolted although the short final 3rd class section up to the anchors is unprotected. Very easy terrain although a fall from this point would prove painful.


Solid climb, nice warm up for fresh meat or paradox. There is a large(4'x2'?) piece of loose rock to the right of the climb about eight or ten feet off the ground. Not part of the climb, but my climber kicked it on the way down and it had A LOT of play to it. Oct 25, 2017

the loose rock has been removed. Careful on rappel as there are more large bricks waiting to fall on your belayer. Jun 20, 2018
