BETA PHOTO: Jobsite Left 3 The Paper Route 5.8 4 May I Take Yo...


A bouldery start, followed by easier climbing above.

The crux is down low, getting to and clipping the 3rd bolt. The second clip is pretty awkward as well. There is also a bulge after the penultimate bolt that could be difficult.

The rock is quite sharp and leaves tiny, bloody holes if you aren't paying attention.


9 bolts to chains. The second bolt really needs a long-ish draw or the biner gate will open on the rock. There was one other bolt where I wasn't happy with the lie of the biner, but I don't remember which one.


This is the fourth-from-the-left route on The Jobsite, at the far left of the area.

"...could be difficult", but I'm not sure because I went slightly left rather than straight over the bulge.

I also tried the start several times and took 4 or 5 small falls onto the second bolt. Finally I decided I was wasting my belayer's time and used the "French" method to clip the third bolt. However, I think the start is probably 5.10.

Anyway, I climbed it in shameful fashion so take my 5.10a rating with a large grain of salt. Ask at MountainWorks in Provo if you must know.

I finally got back and redpointed this yesterday. The start is definitely mid-5.10 (I changed my rating from 5.10a to 5.10b).

I really liked the opening sequence. Fun steep edges, that lead to easy stuff. I could agree that it is 5.10a/b

This is my favorite route over here. The start really didn't seem too bad this time around. Felt like .10a. Just depends on which holds you grab, I guess.

Yeah, I thought the first move alone moves this higher on my list. The rest of the climb is pretty easy but fun, but the move up to the second bolt is sweet.

Worth doing if you've climbed everything else. A little bit sharp.

I really liked the bouldery start but felt like the climb was pretty good all the way up as well.

What a fun route, this 5.10b has a pretty tough boulder start. The climbing starts at a v2, then turns into 5.8 climbing, with a little spice at the end. WELL PROTECTED the first 3 bolts are 2 or 3 feet from one another which makes working the start possible, but then skipping a bolt to send the project is also an option. have no fear to climbing this route, give it a shot, everything is there. SAFE.
