This is Nate topping out on "Better off a Has...


This is the best 5.8 at Falling Rock. Directly across the canyon from Garden Party is a black limestone block semi-detached from the main cliff. This route climbs the inner corner of the block facing back towards the parking lot. It is the leftmost of three routes on this wall. It is easily identified by the horizontal gash at 1/3 height.

This route is fairly reachy moving up to and past the horizontal, but the holds are all there. Sustained classic moderate limestone face climbing.


Draws. Easy to toprope from bolts.
