I've seen lots of people whip here. What's...


The crux of Corner Drug comes early, but pumpy climbing up high stops other climbers in their tracks. Climb on the polished jugs, pockets, and edges up the obtuse dihedral. Pass a crimpy crux after the 2nd bolt. Rest on the ramp above before heading up the pocketed dihedral above. The most obvious line swerves right for a few bodylengths of climbing before rejoining the dihedral near the anchors. It is popular and fairly polished, as well as steeper than it first appears.


Located in the obvious slightly overhanging dihedral on the right side of the Addiction Wall.


8 bolts to anchors.

Steep it is with beautiful movement on big holds and side pulls. This one is sweet and it gets shade early in the afternoon!

Too slimy. Maybe this route was fun a very long time ago. Even on a cold day this thing is slick.

I just did this route 2 weeks ago and didn't think it was too slimy at all. In fact, I thought it was the best .11- I've ever done. Some of the holds have to much chalk on them and would benefit from a scrubbing. Other then that I'd say it's totally fine.
