BETA PHOTO: Roughin' Up the Suspects- 13c.


Roughin' Up the Suspects is an excellent, difficult route (one of the hardest at the Obed) with explosive and devious crux moves.

Start on a pile of rocks and climb jugs to slopey and dynamic moves below the first roof. Clip a high bolt over the roof (long draw usually in place) and execute the boulder problem crux (V7/8) to the horizontal. Climb left along the horizontal (keep your feet on if you can), and swing through the finishing jugs to the anchor. Lower off 30 ft. out from the wall.


The route is just right of Solstice, about thirty feet right of the cable handrail as one hikes right from the Image Wall.


6 bolts, usually with fixed draws. A stick clip might be nice to get to the first bolt.
