Great continuity with lots of 9ish moves. Nice stone too.

Angles up and left and has some thought provoking sequences.



two routes right of Chainsaw Willy, or

one route left of YCKMD


9-10 bolts to anchors

I climbed this last weekend and though the book said there were anchors, I did not see any at the top of this route. I did not see any anchors on the next route left of me, but did see some anchors two routes left on the top of Chainsaw Willy. It made for a nice long route, the traverse over to the anchors is easy, but just thought I would let people know.

Unfortunately, this route got toasted badly in this summers fire. There's lots of spalding for the first 20-25 feet, so be careful of pulling off sharp, loose flakes. Hopefully, after this winter most of this will have sluffed off.

I finally got around to cleaning this route up. Got all the scaling off and now the start is considerably harder than before, like 11b/c. Good pockets to the first bolt, then very thin crimping and feet and a cross-over till clip the second bolt, then shallow pockets and another cross-over to the third. After that, the route was not affected by the fire. A very different route now but interesting and intricate for the first 25 feet.
