Description

My favorite climb here. This is the tallest climb on the wall and thanks to a 12" glue in bolt it goes through the lightly overhanging rock at the top of the cliff. Start on the dirty slab and clip a bolt before getting to the actual climb. BETA ALERT: Follow a series of huecos to two small crimps and a dyno to a large hueco. Move up and left to a large square hold just before the crux bulge . Move quickly around the bulge through a series of crimps. Climb up easier ground for two bolts to a high right crimp followed by a long reach up and left to a hueco and a second slightly easier crux (you're above your bolt but the fall is clean, I took it many times). finish up lightly overhanging jugs. a large pebble in a hueco on you right makes the best clipping hold for the anchors.

Location

Just right of Gabee and just left of the high right facing roof.

Protection

10 bolts

Just took a trip out there yesterday. Of the ones I did, this was definitely my favorite. Felt more like 11B-C, but that doesn't diminish the quality! Awesome route! Mar 31, 2017

Haven't gotten to those yet but plan on it. Great little spot for a nice half day of climbing. Mar 31, 2017

Dustin- since not many people go up there, I was just curious if you've gotten on any of the harder climbs (beetard roof, or honey pot). Any thoughts on the grades? Mar 27, 2017

Broke the right hand intermediate at the first crux, although there is still a shitty little pinch left. Doesn't seem to change the crux much, which is still a height-dependent deadpoint kind of affair. Chicken bolt up high seemed reasonable and I didn't mind clipping it even after doing the route a few months ago before it was there. Mar 26, 2017

Did a little more deep cleaning after the loss of a key hold. Have only climbed it on a fixed line but it's most likely 11D now, although the lower crux got a little easier. Also, added a bolt at the upper crux after several people told me it was scary. It's the only 5 piece expansion bolt on the route. Feel free to skip it, it's a clean fall. Feb 8, 2017

Awesome route! Best line up here, must do. Definately 11D. Bomber glue in bolts. Thanks for the hard work JT. Jan 25, 2016
