BETA PHOTO: Absolutely Nothing (pic taken from left).


Absolutely Nothing is the best climb on We Did Rock and the third line from the left. Head up steepish terrain and tackle the lip. The beginning portion of this climb always feels insecure, as if all the holds are sloping the wrong way. Probably a personal problem. After the lip continue straight up, connecting various ledges, pockets, and other features with enjoyable smears and slab moves on high quality rock. These moves are the best part of the climb.


6 bolts to a set of rap rings.

Very fun route, and easier than you think, once you get your hands and feet in the right places.

Right around the second bolt there is a fairly large loose rock. I knocked on it and it seems pretty solid so I expect it to stick around.

Just be conscious when placing your feet for the third clip, it felt natural to want to use it as a foot placement.
