BETA PHOTO: Rhetoric Bolt Line


Sequence rich face climbing leads to a mini nose. Crux is pulling over this bulge. Hard moves on plenty of holds provide plenty of options. Juggy finish makes anchor clipping safe and satisfying.

Moves are possible for climbers of any height. We talked to a local guy who said a buddy of his (5' 2") can pull it.


Wall is to the left of DeadCats in a small stepped down area. Counting from "Talk it Up" which is the left most route, "Rhetoric" is the forth route to the right and one left of "Punctuation Mark (12a) ". Look for the orange mini cave just below a bulge with two large jugs inside.


3 bolts. 2 sport anchors.

A pretty key hold broke close to the start making the route a little bit harder. I'd say a small letter grade.
