Will mid-crux on Bottom Feeder (5.11b), Riverside ...

Open, with restrictions: Park on the street MORE INFO >>>


Easy slab into a shallow, flared dihedral where you stem and undercling trying to reach a distant but out of reach edge. Higher, continue up to a committing stand-up move past the 5th bolt as you move onto a relatively blank slab and finish with a few more delicate moves to the anchor.

  • Features a height-dependent bouldery crux that, although out of character with the rest of the route, is the highlight.


Located on the left side of Slab City between Mantlepiece on the left and Goody Two Shoes on the right.


7 bolts, ring anchors

The crux moves are reachy and way harder than anything else on the route.

I found the crux moves to be much more technical than other 5.11s at The Quarry.

I agree with Nathan. Compared to the popular 10d/11a, Tangerine Dream, the crux move on this route is miles harder.

At 6'2" I found the crux substantially easier than 5.11 because there is a solid crimper in the corner a few inches under the "distant but out of reach jug" that was reachable.
