The Lurper!!!


5.7 climbing to the first bolt can give you a false sense of security. Thin holds on a slight bulge leave you wishing for a longer reach. The small roof requires a tricky sequence for those short in stature. The Ruckman guide rates this as 5.8. Feels more like a 5.9+ to me, even the second time around.


4 bolts to chains. Bring QDs and a helmet.

I felt that this route was at least as hard as the other. So 5.9ish... The routes must be cleaning up. I expected a lot more choss (there's some). Good Warm-up. This area deserves more traffic...

Good 5.9, thin, edgy and balancey. Big feet are hiding right at the lip, otherwise the roof would be tricky

Things start feeling a little runout between the second and third bolt. I was getting pumped out. BUT, I'm barely a 5.10 lead climber. So keep in mind I am a relative novice. The route was nice and clean- no choss to wound my belay. The northern aspect also make this prime real estate in the summer.

Easy climbing except that the rock is crumbling everywhere. The bolts are solid. I would call this a 5.8. Bring a helmet for both parties.
