A fun face climb, with a short crux section, and runouts on 5.7/5.8 climbing


Just to the right of The Bong on the north face of The Blob.


one bolt plus a few pieces of gear

FYI, J-Tree West '06, lists this as a 5.8 R.

I thought it was 5.8.

The horizontal before the crux takes decent gear, although it's probably a good idea to equalize at least two pieces here. The move getting to the bolt didn't feel like 10a to me. Maybe a 9 at most. This is a decent route with good rock and it's convenient to do after ticking The Bong. It would be nice if it had a couple more bolts. While the existing bolt looked quite new and solid, this route should have an R rating for sure.

Best hands for the crux high-step above the horizontal are both to the left.

The only safe way to do this route is on top rope. The move above the first horizontal is totally height dependent. The shorty (5'1") in my party got shut down cuz there's only one usable hold for the left hand (which she couldn't reach)to balance the right hand mantle.
