Another route from the ladies who helped put up She's the Bosch. This fun route is located on the north side of Flaming Rock. The route starts on the other side of the creek bed, so getting your rope wet when you pull it is a possibility. Follow a right trending groove to a pocketed headwall. The buckets in the overhanging finish are a little on the sharp side. Overall, this is a fun route.

Good climb but it seemed a little soft compared to some others at the City - compare this to Colussus on Bath Rock for example.

Agreed, more like 10a or 10b. But then again I am a power climber and might have literally not noticed a "hard" move if it was not technical. I thought it was easier than Quest for Fire (10c), Tribal Boundaries (10b), or Reservations (10a), all routes nearby. I also thought Colossus had a harder move, for that matter. My partner, who flashed all of the 10a's and 10b's we did, and flash-followed some of the 10c's (but nothing harder) flash followed this route and said it felt easier as well. He could not do the move on Colossus at all.

I think harder than Tribal or Quest for Fire but a single hard move. As hard for me as Colossus.

Fun time. Great finish.

Very fun route. I love the variation, felt like three distinct styles, each enjoyable on their own. Great angle on positive jugs to finish. Not a lot of technique required, but for climbers whose strengths are not raw power, I could imagine this feeling like 10d. I wouldn't argue with 10b or c. 10a might not accurately reflect the experience. Regardless, great fun.

Cool climb but I feel like the rating is way off. I feel like I have fought harder on .10b's than this climb. The crux feels like it is at the lower section for sure (first 3 bolts) then a no hands rest (or just sit down and shake out) before the super insanely juggy sharper upper section. Good for the ego but soft for the grade!

I loved this route. I'd call the halfway bulge pull a .10c move. Get high, reach up and over to find a good hand hold, and get your feet up and then pull over. Or do the beached whale move. Either way, after that there are sweet jugs on an awesome overhang to the chains.

Top section was stellar. Bottom very awkward along seam and getting to second bolt.

I thought this was a bit harder to read than Colossus or Tribal Boundaries, certainly not as sustained or pumpy. I'd give it a 10c, but like others have said the top is steep but pretty cruiser easy 10. First clip felt pretty close to PG-13 to me, after that the next couple clips should awaken the senses. good back up plan if tribal and transformer are swamped. Stays in the shade for most if not all of the day.
