At 11b, this is one of the easier climbs at the Pet, but it's solid and the first bolt is too high for most stick clips. The crux comes between the first and second bolt, but the route stays sustained the whole way. There's one spot where you could probably "cheat" by going a bit right, but staying on the line is rewarded by good climbing, and it doesn't change the overall grade.

This area of the Pet wall can get some welcome shade from trees while the rest of the wall roasts.


This route is roughly in the middle of the upper tier of the Pet wall. Its distinguishing feature is that it's the only climb in the vicinity that doesn't look like a 12.


Five bolts and a two bolt anchor. A .75 camalot sized piece before the last bolt is nice but not absolutely necessary (definitely recommended if this grade is close to your limit). As mentioned above, the first bolt is too high for most stick clip. The climbing is probably 5.8 to the bolt, but you would be looking at an ankle breaking fall or worse if you blew it.

Stay as direct on the route as possible and the line is a little more challenging at the easier sections and flows a little more nicely overall.

A small cam (#1 blue Metolius Master Cam if memory serves) helps mitigate the ankle-breaking potential at the start.
