BETA PHOTO: Birthday Girl.


Fun face climb through 2 bolts. Start in the left facing corner, move up to the horizontal and diagonal left to the first bolt; straight up from there. Hunt for the amazing finger tube above the small roof.

Two bolts for a top anchor.

This is the easiest bolted/mixed route here.


Far right of the Main Wall proper. +/-20 ft right of Margies Curves - Left.


2 bolts plus a horizontal that takes a piece of pro.

More sustained and interesting if in the lowest 10 feet, do not use any holds on (or right of) the Keneissiology crack.

If this is your first climb at Boxcar, the crux sequence might feel like 5.9
Only flaw is that it's much easier after the crux (but still nice moves).
