This route is an recent addition to the Palace (~2 years old), so there may still be some loose rock. It makes up for its lack of rock quality with length. The route is about 98 feet long, so be careful lowering your partner.

Follow 13-14 bolts on continuous 5.10 climbing to a 5.11ish crux at 2/3rd's height.


This is the first long route to the left of "The Rack".


14 bolts.

It is a long route (100 feet), but the rock quality is so bad that I was fearful of pulling down many of the holds. I don't know if it will every clean up to the point that it is worth climbing. Hard to rate since I was not willing to use some of the bigger holds in a couple sections, and the rating will vary depending on what holds you are willing to use.

The rock seemed totally solid to me, but it does look bad. The first half of the route is relatively easy, but then it steepens. Fortunately, although it's a bit of a a cheat, you can step left or right at various points for good rests.

Fun, fun, fun. You might want to pull softly in a few places, but the rock is for the most part pretty good.

Those of you who hate it, keep quiet. Excellent rope stretcher. Love it!

Pulled a grapefruit-sized rock off this one yesterday.
