This is a good warmup climb. Start with a few steep moves, it has a couple small roofs to tackle. This gets the blood flowin'. The only annoying part is that it isn't all vertical.


7 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.

Is this the same route that's rated 5.10a/b in the guidebook? Just curious. The start isn't hard, but the first bolt is off the deck. Then a nice bulge with one thin move; I don't recall roofs. Good climb, anyway.

This is a fun route, though it may be mislabeled. The start is bouldery and there is a thin move around the 2nd bolt with a cool mono to the right. You have to pull a small overhang above the big ledge halfway up to finish.

I thought this climb was great! Crimps, finger locks and a cool roof at the end with huge holds! Only the broken ledge midway takes away a star.

A nice climb, but now it has bad anchor bolts!!

I disagree that CM has bad bolts. We ran up this route the other day, and I checked the anchors. The right hand bolt has a moveable hanger, but the bolt seems to be ok. The left hand bolt appeared fine. I’m not an anchor expert, so maybe one of the Bosch/Hilti guys could check it out to confirm and replace if necessary.

The anchor bolts are not bad, but the rings are halfway worn through. Bring a leaver biner or a quicklink to back them up.
