To the left of Jolt is a big orange face that is capped by an 8 foot roof. It is just stunning when the late evening sun hits it.

This route climbs up some easy scrambling terrain for about 40 feet where the real climbing begins. From here the difficulty increases as you progress. Some Interesting problem solving on a thin face felt about 5.9 to me. A solid rest in a horizontal break gets you ready for game time, layback up the Beautiful right leaning fin which gets harder as you go. A thank god jug gives you a break before Clipping the roof bolts. Climb the right edge of the roof and hand-traverse left across the front and up to clip the chains to an amazing view.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The first 40 ft of climbing is very easy but has relatively poor rock quality. I spent many days working to remove hazardous rocks but please take care to tread lightly on this section so to avoid finding something I could have missed and inadvertently bombing someone below with it.


The route starts 25 feet right of Electric socks. But the meat of the climb is just left of Jolt.


12 bolts to pigtail anchor.

My pleasure!
Honestly the quality of this one really surprised me. Once the thing cleans up I see no reason why it wont be considered pretty classic.

I spent another 3 hours cleaning this rig this morning and I think it is all ready to be enjoyed.

I had no idea the can of worms I was opening when I started this one. I had to remove a ton of unstable rock. Now I can say the upper half of the climb (the hard part) is pretty solid, The first 4 bolts or so has poor rock quality but is no harder than 5.5. I have done what I can with it but please climb with care. It came to a point where it seemed if I kept removing what ever I could I would end up dismantling the cliff all the way over to Jolt.

Be safe and I truly hope you all enjoy it. I find it to be engaging and exciting.

I finally took a run on the completed Rise Against this morning. Felt nice to not have to do any work on it. Other than a couple of small crumbles it is was in really good shape.

Over all I am very happy with the route! My only after thought is that I would have placed the last bolt before the roof about a foot to the right. This bolt was in the right spot until I had to remove a foothold that could have detached over time. If the bolt presents an issue I will replace it with a closer one, hit me with the feedback. Have fun!
