Description

Start on a lieback flake. The crux is in the lower section of the route. We did this route back in 2010.

Location

This is just left of Born On The Fourth, which starts just around the corner. Rappel the route with a single rope.

Protection

Five bolts & anchor.

A few blocks (some 1 foot in diameter) by bolt 3 were incredibly loose, so I did some cleaning. It looks like it would have made the transition right a little easier if they were there and solid. However, I don't think it makes the climb any more difficult to warrant a different grade. Your belayer would be wise to wear a helmet. Sep 6, 2015

Thought this was a really fun route. First couple moves have some slick feet and I wouldn't have hated having a stick clip for it, but it's doable. If you blow it, you at least have some scrubby bushes to land in :) I noticed a faint pink X on what appears to be a really good handhold around what I think was the 4th bolt or so. I knocked on it and it seemed solid, but it certainly doesn't look solid. If it comes off, your belayer better be quick on his feet, but other than that, it's super fun. Aug 22, 2016
