Immediately right of the boulders leading up to The Sub, Nob Job takes off on big holds, a roof, and some very dubious stone. Good moves, crisp rock, and a jug haul make this a fun line. Rated 5.11d in Tom Hanson's guide, it is certainly a number grade easier than Cheesedick - I thought it felt close to 10d.

If the rock were better, this steep route would be one of the best lines here.


Quickdraws and a rope.

I agree-- it certainly didn't seem 11d to me, either. Very fun route, though, it get two stars in my book...

I think the photo does depict Phalloid Void.

The start is miserable, unless you traverse in from the left. Once above the 1st bolt, it is a great route.
