This is an easy 3 bolt route on the east face of the large rock that sits about 50 feet south east of the main 9th street area. The crux of the route is between the second and third bolts. The route is mostly a jug haul, but it is slightly overhanging.


East face of the large rock about 50 feet south of the east side of the main ninth street area.


3 bolts to 2 bolt anchor

First did this route 06/01/14 and have already gone back to it three times to show it to different people. Fun spot, still unknown, and multiple ways to climb it that change the difficulty.

I did climb up the west side to set a TR, but immediately regretted it and am never doing it again. Safer to just lead and set.

Sick route!

Did this today. Pretty fun short climb. My friend led it first, then pulled the rope and I led after. It seems like you can follow the bolts straight up or move to the right for some nice holds.

Just went and climbed this route for the first time today. Found some lost gear. Let me know if you think it's yours.
