Nostalgia (5.11c), Riverside Quarry

Open, with restrictions: Park on the street MORE INFO >>>


A hard stand up move at the 2nd bolt starts off the tricky opening section. Crimpy moves and reaches make this a sustained climb. All the moves seem easier than the nearby Culture Shock but it may be a more challenging experience overall. Fun climbing throughout.

The extension, called Swank Nostalgia (5.12a), follows 10 more bolts over multiple bulges and checks in at 12a.


This is at the far left side of the large roof and just left of Hanging by a Thread.


11 bolts to open shuts.

Similarly high in quality to Violator. Slightly more sustained as you near the anchor, IMO.

Great route. One of the somewhat more important epoxied holds in the upper crux is flexing and the glue is cracked unfortunately, so well may be harder soon without maintenance.
