JJ Schlick setting up for the crux...


The "Wabash Line" is a mythical rail line that appears when a hobo needs it most, and can take them anywhere they want to go.... Hopefully to Sendtown.

Start to the left of Road Sister, and nimble your way through a thankfully short chossy section at the start. Check your holds. After that the rock and the climbing both get tremendously better as the wall gets steeper and steeper. A good long huck between big holds guards the final pull over the bulge, and if you are shorter this may be more of a full dyno. However, the jug over the lip is huge and solid. Enjoy the swing, and scamper up beautiful solid rails to the anchor.

7 bolts, 2 bolt fixed biner anchor.

There is a good sized block near the top/middle of the route that should probably be pryed off its covered in chalk but starting to get loose and might hit the belayer.
