Walk out on a small ledge past Valdez is Coming to a bolt that should be within arms reach. Continue up the thin face. Difficult side pulls, gastons and crimps.


First bolted line on the left face of the Lobo Wall.


6 Bolts, Chains

Did you actually get on this route James? I bet it hasn't had a bolt clipped in 15 years. Pretty hard as I heard from those that did get on it.

I did. I wound up bailing after several bolts. The holds are very difficult and not so positive. I thought it was an interesting climb none the less

Scamper up and traverse a grungy ledge to obtain the first bolt. In an about-face the ledges and choss give way to near-vertical, sparsely featured, solid face. Dance with your fingers and toes over edges, crimps, and nubs. After a brief exhale at the forth bolt, decipher a disappointingly smooth lip to reach a recessed crack. Trend right using large edges and a horizontal crack past two bolts to the summit.

6 bolts to recessed anchors shared with Valdez is Coming. We found it best to belay from the ground, as opposed to the ledge, directly below the first bolt.
