This is a really fun route with cool movement found between Sanction and Cimmaron. The route starts up steep but juggy rock for the first three bolts, then the crux is encountered as you pull over onto a short slabby section on small holds right at the third bolt. After a good rest, continue up on decent holds for a couple more bolts through a second steep section, then finish up with a long easy slab to the anchors.


This route is located between Sanction and Cimmaron. Start on obvious undercling pinch at the lip of the first small roof right off the ground.


10ish bolts to 2 bolt anchor with chains.

I was told by some people climbing this route today that they had heard it is rated 5.11c/d. Maybe I was having a low gravity day, but it felt more 5.11b-ish to me.

I have replaced the original crappy hardware on this route with good 1/2" by 3 1/2" powerbolts in the steep section and 3/8" by 3 1/2" powerbolts in the slabby section. I didn't have time to replace the last bolt or one of the two anchor bolts, so make sure you are clipped into the left anchor bolt and don't fall on that last bolt (not that it would be very easy to do considering how easy the climbing is). I'll get up there to replace those last two bolts sometime, but at least the route is now safe.

To whoever bolted this route: you really need to get with someone who knows what they are doing and learn some of the bolting basics before you try to put up anything else. Feel free to contact me if you want some instruction. Jul 9, 2016
