Duck and Cover


The crux is above the third bolt (fat double collar Fixe). Continue up the crack to a good stance for the next clip (a little longer run so the belayer should be attentive). The entire climb trends a little right.


The route is right and around a corner from Agent Orange. Rap the route.


6 bolts to anchor and chains.

Mighty fun line. Not your typical sport route with a good bit of finger crack climbing. In that vein, 5.10 leaders may desire a finger-sized piece between the third and fourth bolt.

Thoroughly enjoyed this route as it had a little bit of everything...overhang, crack climbing, face climbing, you name it! I found the crux to be the crack climbing from bolt 3 to 4. After bolt 5 the climbing definitely drops off to more like solid 5.9 or lower but still fun.
