  • Description 

    About 50 feet right of Morpheus (large, right-facing corner) are two bolted route on a clean slab. Snooze Button is the route on the right side of the slab. Climb up the steep slab past on good holds to a bulge. Crank over the bulge (crux) and follow a line of bolts up the beautiful slab to the anchor. Great climbing on soild and beautiful rock.


    9 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.

    Fun route on excellent rock. This area is in the shade in the late afternoon, making it a good destination for after-work climbing.

    Another nice route on this wall. Nice climbing with an interesting crux.

    We climbed here at about 11am and it was IN the sun and hot.

    While short and sort of a one-move wonder, the crux felt like 10b to me.

    Watch out for a little vertical flake on the bottom portion just after the second bolt?? It creaked a bit when I pulled on it.

    Good climbing throughout. Interesting and not so obvious moves on mostly good rock. Just keep an eye on some of the lower rock as it seems a bit rotten (hollow to the tap).

    Does anyone know what the FA's intentions were on the crux at the 5th bolt? I went to the right the first time I did it and recall it feeling 10a or b, so I assumed that was the intended route. Before I climbed it again yesterday I noticed that the 5th bolt is out left towards the arete and made me wonder whether I did it as intended before. I went left around the arete, and it felt 10c or maybe harder for me, but I'm not the best with smeary feet. I was within arm's reach of the bolt doing both variations, so I don't feel like I went off route. I feel you could make a case for 10b either way too. Anyone have thoughts on this route? Either direction, it's a fun route!
