Moving past the 2nd bolt on Simple Simon (5.11a), ...

Open, with restrictions: Park on the street MORE INFO >>>


Located on the right side of the huge perched block that houses the Pioneer Route (5.11c).

Scramble up to the 1st bolt, mantle onto a debris covered ledge to reach the 2nd bolt (hard to clip) and then up some big holds (5.10) to another debris covered ledge. Clip another bolt, mantle onto yet another debris covered ledge and then finish up a short face with two bolts. The crux is after the 5th bolt and involves small edges and some marginal smears.

Decent climbing on this but a whisk broom might be useful as part of your rack due to all of the debris - fortunately most of it's small. Also the placement of the last two bolts is unfortunate as the hardest moves on the route are getting to the last bolt and a fall right before might have serious consequences as you swing down and left onto the (debris covered) ledge.


6 bolts, chain anchors
