Just above the second clip.


This three bolt route stands out on great looking rock on the Spearman Ranch side of the Rock Garden (a few climbs to the left of Team Geritol). The first bolt is about 15' off the ground, but there is a ledge you can scramble up to and make an easy first clip. The climbing is tricky, so use your feet as the hueco pockets aren't as positive as they look from the ground.


3 (now 4) bolts to anchors.

Now 4 bolts, but the new first bolt was a total botch job and is only there to break your ankles (thanks for cold chiseling the old bolt off so the hole can't be reused as well!). Bring a stick clip up the slab to clip the 2nd bolt and keep this good route as fun as it should be. Was formerly a 3 star route.
