This route is a nerve-racking route which protrudes over the road. The rock is great, but belaying is a little sketchy, because you pretty much have to stand on the road. Watch for cars! The start is pretty tricky, and it gets tricky again once you're really up there. It is a solidly fun route.


Literally, it is right next to the road.

Hi there, if this is the route I think it is, it is called, Swimming In the Wind, put up by Doug Ranck in the late '90s. It should be listed in Tom Perkins guide. It isn't a climb to fall off of in front of a bus, it may hurt.
Climb hard and have fun.
