Jay on Kum n' Go.

Seasonal Raptor Closures MORE INFO >>>


This route shares the first 3 bolts with Five and Dime to establish the ledge. From the ledge, you climb a very fun, leftward traverse for 3 bolts. Shake out and chalk up mid-route to get ready for the finish, which climbs through beautiful crimps and sidepulls with a big move to a dinner plate hold to clip the anchors. This route is sustained and fun!


This is to the right of Breaking the Mold.


8 bolts, 2 bolt anchor.

This turned out to be a really fun addition to the wall, and I'd have to say Convenience Cliff now seems 'complete'. The climbing is really fun and varied on this route and a bit more sustained than its neighbor to the left. A fun, overhanging traverse on jugs and crimps leads into vertical to slightly overhung face climbing with nice and increasingly difficult movement to a big move to the finish.

As always on this wall, be careful of the potential of holds breaking, we cleaned what we thought would break and left the rest. Everything we pulled on seemed pretty solid.

The wall does seem to be complete with this sweet route. It couldn't have turned out any better for this route. What a fun time, Jay! All that work finally paid off, haha.

Once again they strike at this wall once more... adding the 2nd of probably the best routes at this wall!! Their vision and their efforts in really completing this wall and making it a real route destination is what this wall was lacking!! Can't wait to get on this one!! Looks so good!! And the pictures don't lie, folks!! It's a great little, kinda hidden wall!! Very quite with great views of CCC! Only been there once, but was stunned by how fun and quality this wall was! Ready to go back just looking at your photos!!! Hope this place starts seeing more action, because I think people would find this to wall to be like the lost temple of gold!! LOL!! I really like what you guys have done up on that hillside! Not a very long approach either if I recall.... Very nice. Thank you for your efforts!!

Nice! You guys finally did that line. What took so long, haha!! Looking forward to getting out there and hitting the canyon again. Plenty more gems up on those hills!!

This was super fun, nice work putting it up. I got super pumped on this route and the finish moves seemed bigger and harder than "Thank You, Come Again". I will be back to this wall in the near future. I haven't got on "Breaking the Mold" yet.

Thanks! Yeah, it's a tough little guy. Definitely solid for the grade but a little easier than some of the classic 12a's like Wet Dream, AKT, and BDD. Breaking the Mold is well worth the effort, have fun!

Has something broken off this route? We jumped on it just before the 12b to the left, and Kum & Go felt much harder this time.

This route is great! 3 back to back to back cruxes that are all in different styles. Love the committing finish.

Great route; harder than the 12a/b up the hill!
