Easy start to thin moves, move left at the bulge, stem up to anchors next to the bush.


Third route from the right end of the cliff. There are two routes next to each other, separated by a tree. The right is "Bad to the Bone (5.12-)" and the left is "Nail in My Coffin".

13 bolts for a total of 15 quickdraws. I went up with 12 and had to reuse a couple.

Great route.

10- seems like a serious sandbag for this climb. the bulge move felt harder than anything on Sweeping Beauty 5.10 to the right. at least there's a bolt every 5 feet so it's unlikely an inexperienced leader will get hurt.

Serious sandbag? Is it 5.11-? No, okay, then it is a little off. Plus or minus a letter or two is not a serious sandbag John. I suggest you consult with Don Buland before posting Jon! ;)

IMO one of the better sport climbs at the grade on the mountain. Long, varied, interesting movement, and several cruxes. If you're tall or have long arms it will feel more like 10a, if you're short it will probably feel like 10c.
