Description

Climb rampy jugs with big feet up the middle of a triangular face. Moving right clip a bolt and place a finger size cam in a horizontal cracked feature. Break soft left on face moves past two bolts to a pedestal belay for Racer-X/Metal/Beetle Bailey.

SHORT CLIMBER NOTICE:  Several shorter climbers have stated that this line has reaches that make for a potential ledge fall in the bottom half of the route.  The “Vertically Challenged” will need their belayer to be ON-POINT and  ready to take up some rope.  Alternatively, have a partner that’s taller than 5’8” and let them take the sharp end for this one.

Location

Splits the triangular face between Beetle Bailey Pitch 1 (10c) and the 5.7 ramp start for racer X. Look for three bolts.

Previously an unnamed solo that was retro-bolted sometime pre-1991. During restoration cleaning in 2019 the original (retrobolted) hardware was upgraded. A bolt was added below to make this climb safe and now offers climbers an alternative moderate start for Racer-X, rather than the often dirty 5.7 ramp.

Protection

3 bolts and finger size gear
