Climber on Happy Endings at the crux.

Description 

Stem up dihedral just left of "Child Abuse" using small and funky gear, then transition onto a uniquely featured but cryptic face with bolts. Mantle onto ledge, then battle through a steep crack section before escaping right to the anchor.

Location 

This is the westernmost route encountered on the main cliff.

Protection 

Gear to 1", 2 bolts.

This route is easy to find: Look for 4 bolts at the very west end of the crag, or in other words, the first route you walk under if you've hiked over from Ozone. In April 2014 I added 2 bolts to the start of the route; it's still stressful but much safer. After the initial 4 bolts, it's all gear to reach the anchor (nuts, a double set of cams from orange TCU through 1 inch, plus a single 2 inch piece). The crux is the shiny and blank-looking boulder problem just below the anchor, so place enough gear to keep you off the ledge as you gun it for the anchor!

Today I saw someone had slung a giant block 2/3 the way up this route (and under the 5-10 crack crux finish) and left two biners as an anchor. Assuming they did so because of some blackberries on the ledge they stopped just below. Just curious about the story there. I will try and clean the ledge, this really is a good route if you re a 5-10 climber, appearances aside. i took the time to bolt it!
