Moving into the crux


Yet another fun 12 on the Drugs and Sex wall. Just to the right of cocaine, this route is easily distinguished by the left to right slanting ledge. Slap your way up this deceptively hard feature to gain the very fun crux which is followed by perfect two finger pockets on the headwall.

One note: I'm 6'2" with a +4 index and I could hardly reach to clip draws to the second and third bolts. Have your tall friend lead this first or, better yet, use a stick clip to pre-hang draws 2 and 3.


around 9 bolts. stick clip helpful

Agreed with the person posting this. First 3 bolts are kind of out of the way and difficult to clip. I recommend climbing through the 2nd being stick clipped. It will make for a more enjoyable outing. Ladder of two fingers up high is money$$$!

Fantastic route! The upper part is very Wild Iris! The left hand jug/flake that you use to pull up into the ramp/corner is a bit suspicious... thankfully you don't have to pull too hard, but exercise caution.

The last 2 lead bolt hangers, and both anchor bolt hangers are showing signs of rust and corrosion. They would be great candidates for replacement.
