No Lawyers Allowed- 5.8 mixed route. Hard to take ...

Check NPS for Closures


Fun mixed route. Climb through monster wind-eroded holds and up a big serpentine crack. Safe climb with plenty of gear and bolts. Lots of steep fun smearing/lay backing moves off big holds. However, some questionable rock and ill-timed lichen patches detract from it a bit.Felt a bit more like 5.7 movement to me than the official 5.8 rating, but the lichen patches and grime push it back somewhat toward 5.8 as your foot can easily blow out while smearing.


2nd route on the left after descending into the Lower Hall. Shares an anchor with Alibi 5.9+ to the right , but you can't top rope Alibi -gotta lead it. Too much of a pendulum with too much to hit.


Gear- 0.4 to #.75 plus 3 or 4 bolts.

We both led this today again and found a very suspect small flake in the crux. We marked it with a chalk X. Definitely makes that section harder if you don't use it.
