Pro Sweat is a fun route that follows a line of bolts up the wall to the right of Sweat. Climb past the first bolt to a small overlap. Just above the overlap is a small “ripple” that heads up and right. Using the holds along the ripple, step above the overlap and continue past three additional bolts to a set of anchor just right of the Sweat anchors. A little thin at the bottom, the climbing eases somewhat once you get above the overlap. Felt a little easier than 5.9.


Four quickdraws and something for the anchor.

Actually the first bolt is above the overlap, but it can be reached from a stance below the overlap (unless you're really short).

Definitely need to watch getting to that first bolt when it's been raining. The small overlap can seep, maing the slab under it quite slick. Made my attempt a doozy!

Opens with somewhat powerful moves up and over the flake to the first bolt with delicate moves following above. Great, well protected route paired with Sweat as a warmup. Go do Runamuck after this!

After doing Pro Sweat, was able to traverse right and set up TR on the 5.9 to the right of it, which felt a little trickier.
