Rusty pulling through the roof on Bone Up.


Varied Face climbing leads through a roof up high. Sustained and pumpy. Classic.


Just right of corner crack; right hand side of Social Platform.


10 bolts.

My first .10d sport climb! Excellent slab start. Gets better up high! Got a chance to climb with Hidetake Suzuki. Showed me the finer points of patience and....dried fish and seaweed "See-food". Yuck!!

11-19-2007 At the 3rd bolt 2 of the key handholds were coming loose, one was the size of a microwave. Be aware of those below you...

Cool climb. My first in the gorge. It'll get you thinking right off the ground and you'll stay kinda pumped all the way through the crux. Enojy!

Accident on 10/15/16 on this route. Saw a pretty big guy pull off a Huge chunk of rock (think watermelon size) before the roof. It came straight down to the belayer, she got pulled in while he fell after pulling the rock off. Luckily it miss her head, but it did totally smash her right foot. I was first on scene with other climbers around helping to get her out using the liter near the bathrooms.

Stay safe
