From the "New Routes" section of
The second clip is difficult for short people. Climb straight up the face to a left-rising crack, then straight up to the top of the face. Instead of standing up, hand traverse left on hidden jugs for 10' to a fixed anchor. 25'


On the Squatter Wall, 150' left and uphill from the Sports Arena. It is the right-most of three bolted lines. From 4' right of the 4-trunked maple tree, and 8' left of the right side of the face, at an incut edge 6' up.


4 draws to anchor.

A fun, balancy climb with the crux right at the last bolt. Felt stiff for the grade.

FYI, I broke off a nice in-cut hold below the fourth bolt. In my opinion, this makes the crux less straightforward.

I thought the crux was around the third bolt. huge hand rail from the 4th bolt on to the anchor. .10a is a good grade for the route, if not a bit soft. some fun slab moves
