Sloppy, greasy holds get you past the first bolt where you can reach right to grab the arete. Slightly overhung, this route requires that you have good feet. Resist the temptation to use the main Kitchen wall.


Three bolts to double chain anchor.

Glassy again, just way too short. Kind of contrived, too, as it would be a lot easier using that left wall.

This gets attempted A LOT! And I can't figure out why... there are so many better routes of the same grade around.

This climb has two eliminations to make it the 10d grade. You can't use any of the crack or the left wall of Right Corner, and you can't use the right arete, as that's another route put up before this one.

It was named after a climber who never called a route by its name, but by its grade.

Contrived, greasy, pumpy, historic- what more is there to ask for in a climb?

ha ha, contrived is right. I knew nothing about this route when I climbed it and was all over the opposing wall. Thought it felt about 5.7 that way.... barefoot (don't worry I cleaned every foothold on my way down) ; )

Almost died clipping the third bolt, got my finger stuck in the draw while clipping and right hand started giving out! if you're a 5.10 climber hit this one early in the day, not on a whim on the way back to the car!
