  • Description 

    Another Industrial Wall adventure sport route. Driver Eight features lots of loose rock down low, and lots of funky groove and roof climbing up high.

    Climb the first two bolts of Coltrane, then continue straight up past a large reinforced cobble and do a very reachy move out right to a four finger pocket(chipped?). Struggle to get your feet over the roof, take a quick rest, then paw your way up a very slopey groove, slap a smooth vertical feature, and grab the break below the final roof. A couple of thuggish moves take you over the roof, and to the chains.

    With better rock, this route would have easily gotten 3 stars. Also, this route may not be worth trying if you are shorter than 5'8". The crux move requires a very large wingspan. Other than these things it's got some fun moves, so if you are in the mood for a little choss, give it a spin.


    About 40 feet down the ramp from The Auctioneer. Start on Coltrane. Look for the unique cobble at mid-height.


    Quickdraws, and a 60 meter rope.
