1st Pitch: Head up off the ground on easy climbing to a high first bolt. Cryptic moves on tufa humps with bad feet lead up to the crux, some powerful pulls between underclings and pockets on slippery feet. From here things ease up but there are some cryptic thought provoking moves leading to the anchors.

2nd Pitch: 5.13d, ascends the blank looking overhung bulge above the belay, looks very hard and hasn't seen too many ascents.

3rd Pitch: Looks amazing from afar, ascends the featureless black streak up the wall. Currently an open project. Probably plenty hard if Tommy didn't send it.


Midway up the Outrage wall lays this route. To the right (downhill) is "Cryin Brian" an open project. To the left (uphill) is "Devil's Cabana Boy". If you reach the old mine you've gone too far.


Bolts to Anchors. There is a bit of a run to the anchors that might be a little scary for someone not solid on 5.11. The actual crux is very well protected.

Probably has about 3 moves of burly 5.11, and is pretty slippery as the name suggests. That being said, the crux on this is awesome, and the rest of the route is fairly casual. Recommend
