Description

Happy Endings is fun and bouldery! This route starts by climbing the first few moves on Branching Out then going up and right with a fun 12- sequence as you climb into a pod by the third bolt. From the pod, execute a powerful boulder problem and crux to get to glorious jugs at mid-height. After getting a good rest on the jugs, crimp your way up and left on crisp edges to eventually join New Beginnings for the last 2 bolts and the shared anchor.

For a variation to the start, you can climb the first few bolts of New Beginnings, then traverse left into the pod. It doesn't change the grade, but it might be a little less reachy getting into the pod.

Location

In between Branching Out and New Beginnings, Happy Endings is the second route from the right, and it climbs the last 2 bolts and shares an anchor with New Beginnings.

Protection

Only 5 draws are required, the first half are permadrawed.

Really fun boulder problem. Within 15 feet of climbing I used 3 kneebars, a sweet undercling cross move, a big dropknee with a hand bump, and another big cross. So much non-straightforward, fun climbing. Aug 14, 2018
