P1: Stem and jam up the short dihedral, skirt left under the bulge, and follow the finger crack to the ledge w/ chains.

P2: Climb up some blocky terrain to meet up with a vertical hand/fist crack with good feet, take it to the top!

Fun for a short 2P tick, but way overshadowed by the other routes on this section of cliff. Rock is pretty solid.


Just right and uphill of Balance of Power and Horse Schist, on the river-facing face. Starts in the obvious dihedral.


Standard rack to 3"

The original 2nd pitch went up a right-facing corner/chimney and was pretty junky as I recall. It kept the whole route at 5.7. FA: Pete Thompson, Trevor Bowman, Bryan Schmitz, Sept. 2005

Bush League Direct is more like 5.9ish. It cuts left from P1 belay ledge, past a short arĂȘte with a couple of bolts and up a groove feature to the top. Not great, but a better finish for sure. We put bolts in on top, but no chain as I recall. Walk off right or rap Balance of Power. FA: Trevor Bowman, Bryan Schmitz, Pete Thompson, Oct. 2005. Apr 19, 2017

Is P2 of this route the one that goes off to the right, or directly up from the P1 anchors? Apr 18, 2017
