Description Suggest change

Fact: the top 1% of climbers can climb over 95% of established routes while the bottom 90% can't even lead 5.11c. This is inherently unfair in a free (climbing) society! No one who climbs 40 hours a week should struggle to send this climb.

The route starts off on some easy jugs up a slab (like climbing with a safety net), but the higher up you get, the more taxing this climb becomes. There are some rests to be found but it's all business to the top. A few long draws will help prevent rope drag.

Note: all bolts manufactured in the US by a for-profit corporation.

Location Suggest change

This left-wing route begins on the sloping rock on the far right side of the base of Mt. Gorgeous. Shares anchors with Marauding Monkeys. There's a double-length fixed draw halfway up.

Protection Suggest change

11 bolts plus 1 fixed draw halfway up. Double chain/mussy-hook anchor (same anchor as Marauding Monkeys). Long draws on the two bolts over the roof prevents rope drag.
