The crux.


This route is the direct start of Cleanup Hitter, joining that route after the third bolt. It was originally cleaned, partially bolted and then abandoned in favor of Cleanup Hitter. After working out the moves and bolt placements, it was brought "back from the dead" and added to the menu of fine climbs at the Front Porch.

Climb on good, gray rock directly above a tree stump. At the second bolt make a difficult move through an overlap; locking off on a good edge to an undercling in the overlap and crossing over to the left. Continue above to a second, shorter crux that consists of sidepulls and technical footwork and body placement. Finish on big, positive holds.


Located directly above a tree stump, this climb is the fourth route from the left at the Front Porch.


8 bolts and 2-bolt chain anchor.

That way seemed easier than the original way we pulled the crux moves (see photo). The undercling is bomber.
