Watch the start of this you start the route and make a couple of moves you are quickly high off the deck as the cliff drops down hill from the start of this route. Smear and slab your way up past bolts and the occasional gear placement. One of the good routes in the area.


Slab Area, just to the right of Stranger Than Friction.


Bolts, light rack.

The FA of Frictionary wasn't done by me or Michael. I'm too short to have placed those bolts that high above the good stances :). I think this one was done by the Jordan's.

I am 6'3" and the bolts are still too high above the good stances.
