More loose rock than your favorite Alpine Route. Belayers beware!


Climber: 7 bolts to first anchor.
Belayer: Helmet & riot shield

This is a terrible climb. Contrived and dirty. Wear a helmet and watch out for loose stuff at the top.

This climb is currently closed and has a sign on it saying so. Bad climb with loose rock. The anchors were in hollow rock, probably why it's closed up.

Fun route, sure it's not a squeaky clean sport route but that's what makes it fun. A fitting name, if you don't look down too much it almost feels like you're on a real mountain climb.

Minimal loose rock these days, moderately fun. Not filthy.
