Climb the pillar to the right of Bourgeois Belay Dogs on great stone (minus the rock covered ledge at 20 feet). Due to the looseness of the ledge (loose pebbles, nothing very large in my opinion), the belayer and climber should be attentive.


This route is located at the south end of the Freeform Wall on a north-facing wall with a tree growing out of it at 20 feet, directly to the right of Bourgeois Belay Dogs. The bolt line starts below and right of the tree.


13 bolts are suggested, 3 long draws or sling for second bolt due to rope drag.

Heads up. Crumblies may easily fall on parties climbing Bourgeois Belay Dogs. Use caution. I'd skip this one all together, unless you're trying to tick-off the book. Bolting is pretty ridiculous, and you can just move your last draw placement up to a next bolt, multiple times.

Perplexed that the D'Antonio 2010 book gave Cyborg only 1 star. (My opinion) If that's 1 star, this route is a 0 star.
