Start on 4th class climbing to the first bolt. Slightly overhanging from there. Mid eleven climbing starts immediately after clipping the first bolt. Interesting movement on sidepulls.

Technical crux starts after clipping 6th bolt. Redpoint crux is after clipping 7th. Pull through that and it's jugs to the 8th bolt and anchors.


Noticeable fixed line of draws that goes straight up above the 4th class bottom. Jug Abuse (also fixed draws) branches left after 3rd bolt.


8 bolts with fixed draws. Two anchors with draws up top.

Jumped on this route for the first time yesterday. I really enjoyed it. We warmed up by taking three laps on the lower half (5.11 climbing) before starting to project it. After the big jug at the midpoint, there is probably only one more contrived rest. I'm going to have to really dial down my footwork on this one to get the redpoint. I managed to do all the moves, now I just need to link it all up.

Why exactly are there multiple hangers on all these routes?

Perhaps the wall is in the middle of getting a facelift?

Looks like glue-ins were added by a generous individual alongside the older bolts.

Note: some of the fixed draws look pretty manky, with worn bottom and top biners: a couple of the rope-grooved biners were just switched to the top biner!

I'm going to bring a few project draws to replace the ones that are there next time I'm out, but if you're there in the interim, take care.

If you are looking to break into 13a sport climbing this a great way to do it! For my climbing partner Jeff Olesen and I, this was one route and suffer-fest that really bonded us together. We would wake up at 5am to rally each other and Ray Ray his amazing red nose pitbull. Then we would drive to AF from SLC (about an hour) and take turns swapping burns, whippers and frustration's on fixed gear over and over and over again until the summer temps were to hot to permit worthy attempts. Both crux's are past the half way point and their is an interesting ending :) Go for it!
