Start as for Bulletproof, matched on the rail. Go up to the slopey lip (or okay crimps right next to it) and instead of following the slopey arete left like Bulletproof, continue straight up the slopey feature sticking out on the slab. Use weird techniques and body positions to power yourself up onto the slab. Walkoff the back.

This is a neat climb that's not as good as the classic it shares the start with, but is still worth your time.


On the same boulder as bulletproof, which is right by the Yosemite Boulder and the classic Kalbro arete.


A pad for the start, and a spotter to either hold a pad over the tree directly behind you, or to simply spot you. The tree is literally right behind you for this climb, so you need a spotter or you'll probably smack your head.

This is a funky climb, I haven't done it yet but it looks pretty good. I'll get a picture of the route tomorrow.

How can you grade the climb if you haven't done it? Bryce's ratings contain a range of grades. Single black can be anything from v5-v8 and sometimes his estimates are quite off.

I was out there with Tim and Matt and I believe Matt said it was like a hard 6. I've played around on it before and that seems like it would be right, I can't imagine it being a v8. The grade is just a suggestion though, if people climb it and give it a rating than a consensus can be made, and it's a cool enough line that people should try it.

I did manage to send this but if you were to fall you would smash into the tree behind you. They're much better climbs in the area than this.

My use of the Colored Shapes as ratings contain a little more than difficulty/grades. I've never discussed it with anyone, but in many cases I made judgement calls on how experienced a climber needs to be try a certain line - a climb may only be V3 but that doesn't mean a V3 climber should try it - thinking of the Warrior (Easter Sunday) - as they may be lacking skills/technique/etc to safely try it. I adjusted a number of climbs that way, which may explain some variation in the interpretation of the grades. Others, yes, may be off in other ways.
