Warning Stainless-steel bolts are suspect near the coast. A rebolting effort is underway. MORE INFO >>>


Originally had a sketchy start, and so rarely got climbed. One bolt was added in January 2016 and thus the name!

Prepare your digits! Powerful moves on good holds but for fingers leads to the crux just below the tufa.


From the far left of the Reservoir Wall, it is the second route. Starts on the same ledge as and to the right of "Hero".


  • 5 bolts, 1 sling
  • 2 point anchor

Great climb. It's a Crazy Horse 5.11c/d (6c++) if you stay on the marble face through the crux. Try not to get into the tufa, way left, which makes it like 5.11a, and essentially off route. And prepare to fly if you blow the burly clip after the first crux move! Fun times ;)
