BETA PHOTO: Clay City Exit- 11a.


A very fun route with a steep start, an easy middle and a crux at the top.

Follow big jugs and cool pinches out a bulge to a no-hands rest about 15 feet up. A couple of easy moves lead to another no-hands in a concave. Then punch it through the headwall to a single hard move below the anchors.

This is the best warmup on this side of the Den.


Just right of Psychopomp. The furthest right sport route on this section of the wall.


Bolts to a two bolt anchor.

This is a fun romp! Straight-forward climbing the whole way. Makes for a good warm-up before you head to the Lode. Clipping the last bolt was the only thing that was a little insecure.
