Lizard Warrior is a rad face climb. This has well-spaced bolts and thin climbing on razor edges. It starts just right of Front Lines (10d) and takes a line straight up past six bolts to chains. The crux comes at the fourth? bolt and forges through a very blank headwall. Very, very high quality, face climbing.


This route is all bolts, I did however enjoy placing a #1 Friend in the horizontal at the start, but I am a big chicken.

This is a fun sport route chock full of creative moves on interesting holds. Definitely a classic.

This route actually has a direct 5.11 start. As described above you have to skip the first bolt, which protects the hard thin move, by climbing in from the right (which is why the friend placement is recommended).

I thought this was the least enjoyable of the four routes we did at Combat that day. Good moves, but the route is marred by lots of back-and-forth traversing and rest ledges. I just can't see it as a four-star route.

I love this route. The journey to the top is not always a straight line.... Does anyone else think that the direct start is harder than 11? I have only gotten it twice out of like 20 attempts. Crazy thin. The last time I about ripped two fingernails off after my feet came off the almost non-existing crystals that you need to stand up on!

I didn't find a lot of "back and forth" but nice holds on clean rock.
