Sweet surrender

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


Climb 3 bolts of easy (5.10-) terrain before coming to double underclings. A short and powerful crux leads to a good clipping jug. Pull the final bulge and finish on balancy climbing to the anchors


This route is where "the sweetest thing" used to be before it came down. Immediately left of Ground Zero and right of stranger than friction.


8 bolts to rap anchors

I entered this route per the rating of the first ascentionist, but I think it's more likely 12a. The crux is only a couple moves, and they are not that bad.

Crux is only a couple moves like what steve said, but I feel like individual crux move is harder then crux on other 12as at the quarry like megalomania/raging raptor
