Jesse Schultz doing the reverse Huck.

Closed to climbing March 15 - June 30 MORE INFO >>>


The start and the finish pack the punch. The middle section has big holds on thin but solid stone.


Orifice Wall on the right side. Single belay bolt about 6 feet right of the first bolt.

Byron Hempel, The CASA Anchor Replacement Team has been there and done that. Steel draws to the chains and Locktite on all the nuts so hopefully they will not come loose as the top one did. The bolt was worn because the draw was swinging back and forth for a while so it would not tighten back down. Replaced that one with a new 4 1/2 inch SS 3/8th inch bolt.

None, unless they use horses to make chewing gum and bailing wire.

fun start moves lead to a nice rest before a short but legit V5 crux of pinching and pulling, and the ending is tits too

Wow! At the end of the day and after sending OP and disfigured foreigner I tried this thing. Got my ass handed to me at the crux at the top! It will go next time I am on it. Great route. But man that flake scary shit. But if Mikey B was yanking on it. It should be good.

This thing is enduro, don't think I've ever one-hung a route so many times before eventually sending.

Climbs a LOT better than it looks.

As is becoming my style, I left two quickdraws and two alphine draws on this route 9/27/2014. Unfortunately I have not returned and likely will not until next season. Feel free to use them but be sure to pay attention to their condition. Feel even freer to return them. Thanks and sorry.
