Steve J. on Bottom's Up 5.9.


This route is on the same buttress as Cheers. It starts on the north face and rotates around onto the west face after the third bolt. The overhanging sections and small roofs make this look harder than it is, but bomber jugs can be found for most of the daunting moves. See Cheers for directions to the rock and a photographic topo.


6 bolts, chains. Use a two foot runner on the third bolt to reduce rope drag.

This climb is fun, but the rock isn't confidence inspiring. Still, fun moves on big jugs.

Fun route, big holds make it feel pretty secure for a 9+. About 2/3 up where the overhang starts, there's huge flat plates to haul yourself up on if you choose, but I wouldn't be confident at all in fulling weighting them.

Really fun moderate sport lead. Fun to go from one face to the others.

Awesome route! If you are in the Boot Hill area, climb this! The first bolt looks scarry since you have to Boulder a little over 10ft. If you are scared, just clip the first bolt on the other route to the left. Holds are juggy and there are many places to stand and even sit. Once you are at the top take some time to look around you. This might be the most beautiful area!
