Marcy working the route ground up


A moderate mixed line. Of note, Marcy drilled her first bolt from a hook placement while establishing this route ground up, so congrats to Marcy on a job well done. :)

Start at the left-leaning ramp near the right side of the wall. Head up and left about 30 feet to three bolts. The bolts lead up to a traverse that leads directly right. Finish at a rap anchor on a ledge directly above the start of the climb.


Start at the right facing, left leaning ramp near the right end of the wall.


Singles to #2 Camalot, one #4 Camalot.

Name comes from the shape the route takes =)

More fun than I expected. I was surprised how far right I had to traverse to reach the anchors. It was a fun traverse and not hard.

An interesting variation is to start on this route and right before the traverse right, head up and left and finish on Canadian Bacon. This variation makes for a 5.10 that gets progressively harder from bottom to top.

That is where we originally wanted the route to go. When we did the FA and found that this ending was much harder than the rest of the route, we put in the "C" traverse.

Sketchy-looking flake halfway up, hopefully a new trad leader doesn't put a cam behind there and fall...
