This is a very fun sporty, short climb near the left end of the boot hill climbs. It is just left of the climb hollowpoint on the same face. Although it is not much to look at it does have some very fun moves on the slightly overhanging face.


6 bolts and chain anchors

I thought this was a great route although it was short. It felt like a really hard, compressed version of cheers. I learned to climb in Austin where 60 ft is a rediculously long route though, so I don't mind 40 ft pumpers.

I would believe a sustained 10c rating with a 10d crux.

The rating of this climb was lowered to a more realistic 5.10.......... Definitely not a 5.11 by all means! The ratings also have been lowered on a few other climb's at this area. A few are still rated a little higher than they should be.

Very easy to "Z-clip" when you clip the 2nd bolt.

Anchors for this route are literally inches away from the anchors of the 5.8 to the left. I got confused and ended up finishing on the anchors on the climb to the right. Stay left, towards the arete.
