  • Description 

    This is a nice, little, sport climb on the Forbidden Fruit Block with a low crux. Start in from the right and quickly move into a power-favoring sequence. Continue up with one more interesting bit near the top.


    This is the 2nd route from the left of the lines.


    5 bolts, 2 hooks for anchors.

    Comparing today's climb vs Bob's book, there are 5 routes on the crag, he lists 4. So, for the uninitiated, THIS is the second from the left route, between Percocet Arete and High Test. (Percocet Arete is just left around the corner.) The route description here on MP is right. [Bob doesn't show this route is his book and confusingly lost the High Test name; but MP doesn't show the 5th route on the right of the face, which Bob calls Knocking on Heaven's Door, 5.11c.]

    So, High Test is the obvious overhanging rib left of Forbidden Fruit crack with 6 or 7 bolts to a 2 bolt [w chain] anchor. Bob has it labeled as route #49. KOTH starts down and left of High Test.

    Obviously there is a name/route error somewhere. Maybe someone who has climbed Knocking on Heaven's Door could post-up the route?
