This is slab/face climbing. It is possibly a sandbagged route.


Quickdraws for the bolts, the route can be toproped from the 2 bolt anchor at the top.

Good route, felt like a sandbag.

What's with all DA BOMBS? This route is cool. Sure it's a total sandbang, but that is not a reason to Bomb it!

I just climbed it again the other day, tricky slab moves, perfect bolt placements to really get your attention, sure your looking at some roadrash, but hey, that's the name of the game!

This is a fun slab! It seems like something broke off between now and when I first did it in 2000. Ditto Sandbag....

Not a bomb!

Did this a few days ago, and I must say that rating was probably about right. There's just a couple of big, mantle moves.

A. Pon had spotted this little route and asked me if I wanted a go at the FA. It took me a few tries but I finally got it. At the time, I was leading around 5.8. Knowing what my ability was had me put the rating for this route at 5.9+.I'm surprised that people feel this is a "sandbag". Either I was climbing better then I thought or there is a bit of rating inflation going on.

This route was really fun, can't believe it got a bomb. Delicate footwork and balance made it feel 5.10-something, not 5.9. The first bolt placement scared me a bit - I'm short so I had to commit to the moves before clipping, but it otherwise seemed safe.

Another Infirmary climb with a stupid first bolt. If you are tall, there is a great stance, but if you are not, you can easily deck... the bolt could easily be 6 inches lower and the climb would be much better and safer.

Committing moves to the first bolt. More than I was comfortable with.
