Sizzle is a technical route that combines hard moves across a slab followed by a bulge and groove that ends with a run out slab for a finish. It starts up and left from the base of the small, dirty looking pool. It can comfortably be done as one pitch with a 200 foot rope.

Scramble up and to the left along the edges of a slab. At the top of the slab, locate two side by side bolt hangers on a bulging headwall. Clip the first bolt and mount the slab. Clip the second bolt on the left and un-clip the first bolt. Desperately work left and up to the third bolt. Climb up into an undercling and over the bulge into a left facing groove. Climb up the groove to the last bolt. Make a move back to the right and mount a right leaning ramp that finishes at the anchors. The anchors are hidden to the right about 20 feet away from the last bolt. Enjoy.


Use the standard rack of quickdraws and a 200 foot rope.
