Climb left of crack then follow bolts up to the chains. Fun climb.


This is the third route from the left (south) on the left hand wall.


Limbomaniac is a mixed route, meaning it is intended to be climbed with both traditional gear and quickdraws. While climbing it as a pure sport route is possible there could be serious consequences if the climber falls due to error or poor rock. Either way use caution.

6 or 7 bolts to chains. Belayer should wear helmet as rocks seem to like to fall here.

Bring some gear unless you like run out on holds that will not last the decade, above great ankle breaker ledges. Tiny and finger-sized cams will do. Only 5, maybe 6 bolts. Easy 5.7, wear helmets belayers stand back.

agree with kirk. might be good for a new leader who wants to place some gear but not stake their life on it.

This is a MIXED route in the guidebook, without gear you're looking at a ground fall runout on easy 5.4 ground between the second and third bolt and a 25-30 foot runout from the last bolt to the chains with some 5.6/5.7 moves.

If anyone thinks it is worth it they are welcome to add some bolts.

Fun climb. Haven't been on it for years. Probably not a great climb for a 5.7 or 5.8 climber to jump on the sharp end. The first bolt off the ground to the left is on Pindering to the Masses. Saw a party today using it thinking that is where the climb started, but made the climb a bit harder. If you don't like the runout to the first bolt, you can clip that bolt then come down and do the regular start. Has mussy hooks at anchors.

A 5.7 climb with a 5.9 start to a very high 1st bolt. Bring small cams to keep the runouts to a minimum. Devious for a 5.7. The surrounding 5.8s felt easier, althougb the last half of this climb is fun 5.6.
