Working through the steep stuff near the top of &q...


Drive-By Genocide is cool because the finish is really steep for 5.10, with great jugs. The start is forgettable 5.9 cobble pulling.
The climb is well-protected, though some of the bolts can be hard to find.


Genocide is up the hill and to the right of the main part of Walt's Wall, just to the right of a tower.


6 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.

This was one of the first routes that Jason and I ever bolted. I'm not sure we did a very good job - several chalked comments including "choss pile" showed up at the base after we bolted it. I have also heard that it's underbolted. If anyone wants to add bolts, please feel free.

I don't think this route is underbolted (and I like my bolts!). The bolts are maybe a little off the natural line, especially the fourth bolt (which is hidden from below). The first bolt is high up there but it is easy terrain to get to it.
