BETA PHOTO: Hey, Dude, 5.10b.


Hey, Dude has a high 1st bolt, clever thin moves following the arch right, and then it goes straight up to the tree (don't give up and move left). There are friable features, but it is pretty satisfying to lead.

We rap'd the tree, but you could probably work your way up and walk down right.


This may be only 80 feet right of the big flake of Chris & Pete's Wake Up, but you have to walk up about 150 feet to the right and around the end of the main wall to get there. The route begins in a rightish-facing scallop on the left of this wall.


Originally 4 bolts and a cordelette for a tree anchor.

EDIT 2016: Now there are 6 bolts and an anchor. Some lame rebel added 2 bolts, one closer to the bottom and one on the spicy runout at the top. The anchor serves both climbs.

The moves are fun on this. The crux is a little above the second bolt. It is a good distance between the last bolt and the tree. The moves are easier than the crux below, but you better like slab climbing.

Someone added 2 bolts on this climb too.
Don't they know that retrobolting isn't cool?
