S.A.W. Start Right of the Black Streak. Climber:...


Arguably the best 10 at Foster's, Something's always wrong has it all. Start on cruiser slopers and edges, bust through the steep jugs, then keep it together for 40 feet of overhanging and technical climbing.


Farthest left route in the right bunker. Breaks left after the fifth bolt.


8 bolts.

No argument about it. Best ten at Fosters. Move left after the roof for a good rest before you tackle the overhung face at the top.

I LOVE this climb- it's one of my favorites at Fosters. I find the movements to be intriguing and the first few times I climbed it, I found the beta to be a bit cryptic. Now that I have honed in on my personal beta for the route, I find it has a nice flow to it and I enjoy the varied movements. Makes for a great warm-up for the other climbs in the bunkers or a perfect cool down as you're hiking out.

Fun route with lot of variety and great holds everywhere you need them. I found this to be much easier than the rating suggests; however, I think it takes some patience to find the best holds as you move above the roof. There was only one spot (moving up to/beyond final bolt) that required you to make a harder 10 move. The rest was easy 10 or 9 climbing.
