DescriptionLocated between Saddam Hussein and 441, this route, named for my dad, Truman, begins approximately 15 feet to the right of a couple of cedar trees on the left side of the Shale Wall. Climbs the slightly overhanging, bouldery and powerful face for the first 40 feet or so, pulls two distinct bulges onto a vertical section, and then launches into the monstrous roof with big moves between mostly good holds.
This route is a product of teamwork. In the Obed guidebook, Stan Wallace quotes Craig Stannard as saying, “We’re all standing on the shoulders of others.” I have personally been working with the appropriate land managers on getting access to bolt this route for about five years now, but the process began long before that. Thanks to Rick Bost and John Nowell for allowing me to stand on their shoulders!
The Obed bolting moratorium is still in effect; no other new routes are allowed at this time. If you have any questions concerning new route potential at North Clear, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
