|Raptor Closures - 2016 Tunnel 2 Closure Lifted / Upper Canyon Road closures MORE INFO >>>|
This is a nice line with a testy and tenuous crux. It is worth the walk up the hill.
Idiot Savant is on the right side of the tunnel. To get there, walk up the low-angle rock slabs that lead up and right. DO NOT walk up the dirt hillside- loose rock abounds that will just roll down and hit cars in the highway.
When you get a good ways up the slabs, you will begin to see some bolted lines. A big boulder splits the cliff in two - there are currently 4 bolted lines right of the boulder. Idiot Savant is to the right of the boulder, and can be easily recognized because it shares its anchor with another line (Indirect Savant
, 12c)). Indirect is on the left; Idiot is on the right.
Idiot Savant is on the right side of the tunnel.
5 (now 6) bolts.

Although this route has always been referred to as .12a, it seems really, really soft for the grade. I have always considered it to be about .11b. In any case, it is somewhat worth doing as a warm up for Twitch....

This route is probably mid-5.11, it is also pretty good, a little boulder problem leads to steep fun climbing. Worth the hike.
