BETA PHOTO: Kids in a Candy Store


Climb Resoultion Crack but skip the first anchor and continue direct. Pull through two steep bulges on good holds and continue direct to the top. Still a few loose chips but good rock overall.

  • A variation of this upper face was climbed by Kelsey Gray and Kyle Arzt on runout and marginal gear. A number of those gear placements were likely pulled off during cleaning.


Gear to 1.5in, 7 bolts, 2 bolt anchor

Super fun route! crux is the crack at the bottom! Willy P. added a new bolt today that helps avoid a potentially gnarly whip into a big ol' tree. Still nice and heady with some well spaced bolts. An area classic!

Getting up Resolution Crack is beast. A blue BD X4 (.3) protected the lower crack nicely and kept me from decking. The guidebook gear description seemed too small. I only had purple BD X4s (.5) and made them work, placing two in the crack before reaching the first bolt, but a green X4 (.75) seems like it would have been better. Make two or three placements in the crack (starting with the first from the ground) and then move to bolts up Kids in a Candy Store. Res Crack is definitely the crux, but the climbing is sustained and thoughtful to the upper anchors for Kids. Res Crack seems harder than 5.10d's that I've lead. Kids seems true to its 5.10a rating.
