Description

Climb on gray rock that is featured with "bubbly" calcite formations from a seep that is wet until early summer, clipping one bolt before you are able to gain the sloping ledge that angles across the face. Once positioned on the ledge, make face moves to access the obvious left-facing corner. Where the corner ends, use holds both in the corner and on the arete to climb the final blocky terrain to the anchor.

Location

On the far right of the Funny Face, this route starts 15 feet to the right of the Borat/Woody start, climbing into an obvious, left-facing corner.

Protection

6 ClimbTech WaveBolt glue-ins plus an anchor with steel carabiners.

Glad you enjoyed it. It could be led on gear, as I did on the FA, but it's Rifle, so bolts it is.

The route to the right is Rogen, 5.10+ or maybe 11-. We have climbed on it a lot, but it needs a little love still and some reinforcing or removal of questionable holds that I haven't been able to remove. I may add it to the database to prevent confusion as I've been seeing people climb it. May 30, 2017

Enjoyed this - feels a bit like a trad corner. What is the new route to the right? May 29, 2017

I changed the start on this to an easier start to the left that also allows it to have a separate start from the new route on the right. May 16, 2017

I know the rock at the top looks dubious, but it wouldn't come off with hammer and crowbar. I'll probably reinforce some of it with glue to help ease any fears. Jun 20, 2016

The corner is fun, but most of the rock on the arĂȘte above it appears to be of dubious quality. Some dirty rock at the start too, but this will clean up with time. On the plus side, there isn't any polish yet. Jun 19, 2016
