Silent but Deadly is a long varied route on good rock. The first few bolts of reachy slab climbing lead to a pair of sit down ledges. Immediately after the rest a committing move takes you in to slightly overhung 5.11 climbing.

Relax on a mother bucket at the base of the bulge and prepare to blitz the 6 move V6ish boulder problem crux. The intro crux moves are steep and very powerful, but the final slab move of the sequence is likely to be the one that throws you for a loop. Stick this extremely balancy move and then sketch your way to the top on dirty holds.

This wall gets shade around 2:00 p.m.


Starts just to the right of the Pocket Route. Look for the giant glued on jug in the roof.


9 bolts + anchor
