Located on the taller left side of the Short Wall about twenty feet right of an crack/break in the wall - Mad Race (5.4). Scramble onto a ledge at the base and set a belay.

The first bolt is up high, so get the tallest person in your party to clip it if you can. The moves come at you from the time you start to the very end and are thin, tenuous and somewhat improbable. Being tall and/or having a long reach is especially helpful on this route.

The rating may seem a bit of a sandbag for those climbers not familiar with this style of climbing, but what did you expect at Josh? Two stars out of five.


4 bolts (5/16",3/8"), bolted anchor

Gota say this was the most sandbagged route I've climbed at Josh. And I come from an area full of nar nar slabs. With that said, I found this route to be one of the best on the short wall.
