Cody warming up on Garbageboy on a perfect day for...


Nice, fun, and slightly overhung 5.9 with large holds. Appears loose but seemed solid.

After crossing the stream and running into the trash tower, this is the climb on the far left of the formation within a small "corridor".


4 bolts to 2 bolt anchor.

Left of the two top anchors was nearly completely unscrewed.

Nice route with a slightly awkward belay area. Enjoyable overall.

Fun climb, but be careful when clipping the 2nd bolt, I've heard of one person decking on this route and I've seen a second one first-hand. Springer hangers at the top make for easy cleaning.

Fun, sustained pulling on big but somewhat slippery holds up the slight overhang. Find the crux passing the third bolt.
