Stout start made trickier thanks to a tree. Don't cheat! Use good feet and less than ideal hands to reach the second bolt and pull over a buldge. One more bolt on good but polished holds takes you to the chains.


The line of bolts to the right of Hollywood. There is a tree just in front of the route (and can be used to clip the first bolt), but with a layback, you can reach that bolt without it.


3 bolts. Anchors with perma draws.

On Oct 11, 2013 I added a new bolt in the run out between bolts 2 and 3. After hearing that a climber decked on this route (that I equipped), I decided to make it a safer climb for beginners (and got Matt's CTM approval). Although it sounds like the climber decked due to falling through a back-clipped quickdraw, I decided to add the extra bolt... well, because this route IS on Seismic Wall after all. All kinds of newbie mistakes are made here and I'd rather error on the cautious side of things here.

The start is what makes this a 5.9, try not to use the tree, or at least be gentle on it. It gets plenty of abuse as it is. Pull over the bulge / bolt 2 and the rest is smooth sailing to the top pocket.
