Order of Operations is the center of the three lines of bolts left of Ms. Luval Cranks a Thesis. The first bolt is about 15 feet up, above a usually seeping, small overhang. Getting to it is not as bad as it may appear, but some might want to stick clip it. Undercling and crank your way past more bolts to a no-hands-rest ledge and the last of the difficult climbing over a bulge above (resist escaping right to the juggy crack). One more bolt and you’re at the chains shared with Reading Comprehension.


See Ms. Luval Cranks a Thesis for the approach. Once at the base of the Ms. Luval face, scramble maybe 20 feet along it to the start, below a dead tree root jammed against the rock.


Draws. Rap/lower from chains.

[Hide Comment] This is a new classic and one of the best 11c’s in all of BCC. Its the good quartzite, making you use high flow moves between all kinds of holds. The way those underclings just keep giving and giving might be what you remember most.

Edit to say this line gets nice afternoon shade in spring-summer fall. Once winter sets in, the sun is more to the SW, blasting it and giving you a nice window of winter climbing. Nov 11, 2017

[Hide Comment] Choss Garden on steroids. Longer and steeper but less sustained with welcome rests. A most excellent route. Jun 3, 2019
