  • Description 

    This route climbs way better than it looks. Follow the line of bolts up the steep slab. Cool moves getting past the lower part of the route using flakes and pockets. The upper part has a reach move to gain a cool bucket and then the top.

    Location 

    Start 50 feet right of "Fit for Life" on the right side of the wall.

    Protection 

    Six clips to a two-bolt anchor.

    Great route for the length. Seemed about 10c.

    Great start to this route, requiring balancy, slab technique. The moves were non-obvious, and the thought process was part of the fun.

    Two hard parts, the rest easy. First hard part at 2nd bolt, about 10c.

    The area by the second bolt is certainly the crux. The moves are not obvious, and it takes some thought to figure out the best sequence. The steep part up high is strenuous but not that hard.

    Fun lower crux, decent route for sure if you're in the area. Unfortunate bolting though - definitely some unnecessary ledge/deck potential with the bolt placement. Funny how you round the corner and the grades change, felt like a BoCan 10b but a Castle Rock 9.
