This is now one of my favorite routes in Hatcher Pass. This might even be one of the better 5.10's around.


Scramble up till you are on the grassy ledge.


The original start did not include bolts till now. recently a route went up to the left of this route. The bolts at the start have made this route far less dangerous. However, it is somewhat of a retro. I did NOT put the bolts in, but I sure clipped them.

So that's what all the fuss is about! So good we climbed it twice, first form the right and then from the bolts on the left. The right start is great for the Hard Men (Women) with thin, marginal pro until you start moving right. The bolts on the left will keep you off the ledge unless you blow it on your first gear placements. This would have a wait line at Index! Sep 24, 2015
I doubt anyone will safely climb this route without the bolts. The bolts make it a very logical start and should of been put in on the FA in IMO. Take a look at the roger photos of the FA seems like the route starts left. Go climb this route Lang then get back to me, it's really fun. Sep 22, 2015

Also important to note that Pollard also said that the NEW route isn't the same line as Lemming Ranch. Sep 21, 2015
Kelsey Gray claims he was given permission to add bolts. Sep 21, 2015

The corner takes smaller stoppers than you would think. Save some small stuff for the top too. Sep 1, 2015
