In the ruckman's book they list the route and the FA as anonymous, I don't feel to bad about posting as hippies anonymous because I found this route due to two hippies who would load a bowl then climb 40 feet, load a bowl climb another 40 feet.....all day long.


This is an excellent trad/sport lead, with one placement a verticle crack the other a horizontal follwed by a bolt, you can sling the tree directly above the route but I would also clip into the the anchors above bob's rocking chair.

Fun route. Nice warmup. Couple sm cams and nuts, plus gear anchor. I use the tree up top.

Feels considerably harder than 5.9 if you don't use the roof to the right and pull a straight up mantel. The condition of the bolt makes it even more spicy.
Great #1 placement a bit lower in case everything blows.

Great route, the roof move is fantastic. I don't know if I'd classify this as a sport route I'm not sure the bolt that does exist can even be counted as a bolt. I don't think I'd even hang a picture from it! However, there are some solid gear placement options. (.75, 1, .5) ENJOY.
