The first route left of the trail begins a bit harder than the one on the right. Once again, the second pitch seems the better of the two by far. You can pick off either of the two pitches that start off the ledge behind the tree.


Several draws and a rope.

Say what you may, the first half of this route is not 5.9. Much closer to 11.

I would have to agree with the above post it is at least a 5.10 and likely a 5.11.

I was describing the wrong route. My bad!

The opening moves are the only ones on this route that could be harder than 5.9. But you can avoid them by traversing left from #5. The "crux" is certainly the final moves of the 2nd pitch.

The 1st pitch is called The Ballerina. Where the 2nd pitch is indicated on the beta photo is an unnamed 5.11b.

The first couple of moves off the ground, if you stay in the bolt line, are easily hard 5.10.

The beta photo is of the wrong route. It is a good photo of Roadside. Yes, it is easier if you traverse in above the opening moves, but come on! Don't avoid the chalenge, overcome it.

Essentially the route is a V3 with a 5.6 on top of it.
