JMo warming up on Ninja Warrior.


Ninja Warrior is the dihedral to the right of Rising Sun, and a significant step up in difficulty and quality. Start up blocky rock and climb towards the finger crack dihedral passing a couple dirty ledges. Once in the dihedral expect tight fingers with big moves in between good locks. The upper section is sustained for the grade, and may feel more like 5.11-.


Far left hand side of the LEFT wall. Very stand out finger crack in right facing dihedral.


Triples on #00- #2 TCU's single set of other cams. Small/medium wires. Runners. Chain anchor fixed biners.

A very technical and sustained climb. Lots of committing high stepping and LB, with good fingers but little in the way of feet. Great small gear the whole way, but definitely not an easy tick. Used 2x purple to red Metolius and a few nuts to sew it up.

Really fun route. I brought doubles of small gear and a single set of other cams and had more gear than I needed.

It's better than 2 stars. Bit of walk, bit of scrambling, to immaculate dihedral with ninja moves and ninja gear. I feel like giving it four stars just cause I'm sorry about this route getting neglected....

I'd give it three stars if someone where willing to clean off those ledges, and give her a good once over with a proper set of brushes.I've always loved those nice long pulls between sinker locks at the top. Oh she's dirty....
