Bob Gaines leading Out of Order on the first ascen...


Easy terrain quickly gives way to a tricky lieback past the first bolt and into a devious crux sequence moving past a horizontal crack (crux). Higher a bit of slab climbing culminates with a delicate mantle over the rounded lip to anchors over the top.


Between Alibi and Exhibit A and about 60' right of Tim's Valentine .


3 bolts, ring anchors (shared with Alibi and Witness Stand)

I think this route has 4 bolts. Also another great line on a sunny wall. The crux is technical but well protected. Our little outing did 3 of these routes and found all of them to have bolt placements with good stances and positions. Nice job!

3 bolts with some trickery in several spots making for interesting climbing. Well protected, good movement and sunny. Harder than broken hearted of the same grade…. I think.
