Varied face climbing with smears, crystals and knobs. There is a big slot between the third and fourth bolts, not visible from the ground, that takes a medium cam and offers secure jams while reaching the fourth bolt. Moderate climbing to the first bolt, twenty feet off the ground. For our friend Brian Skelding.


This route is right of A Bolt Too Far. There is a fallen tree at the base, and a large oak tree stands between the bases of this route and A Bolt Too Far.


Five bolts, one medium cam. Two bolt anchor to rap from (no rings yet), or walk off.

Fun route. Great "jug" indeed. Still a touch of moss on it.

Nice addition. Definitely felt 5.9+ / 5.10. You can find some nice small crimpers and features where you need them.
