BETA PHOTO: Cerebral Dysfunction, 5.10-


This route climbs the face about 30' right of Bottle In Front Of Me, starting just uphill from that route. The climbing is fairly unremarkable on this route but the lengthy runouts do add some spice. Although this route has cleaned up some it's still quite loose and with the combination of runouts and bad rock is perhaps best done as a TR via the BIFOM anchors.


3 bolts (5/16"), bolted anchor/rap

Loose and dangerous; not worth the tic.

This route is dangerous even on TR. There is a loose flake at the start that if pulled on too hard will fall directly onto one's feet. I think this is the most dangerous spot, but higher up the rock quality is still not as good as Bottle in Front of Me. It probably doesn't get enough traffic to clean up. Still I found it fun and a bit more sustained than its brother to the left, which eases off lower down. I'd give it a star or two if it weren't for the hazard.

Ridiculously R, exfoliating, loose and hollow. My friend Bill led this (props), but I wouldn't want to watch anyone do such a thing again! :-O
