Tricky, slabby start lead to long moves past overhanging jugs.


First bolted line to the right of "Thing One" near the end of the first cliff at Obscure Rock.


Similar to "Thing One" the first bolt of this climb is located at around 20 feet. You can get pro in to the left near "Thing One", but going direct there is nothing there. Bolts then lead to a chain anchor.

That little ledge from which you clip the first bolt looks a lot better from below than it feels when you get there..Takes a couple of 5.9 moves to get up there..

I climbed the first section of this route on TR to verify that I was comfortable with the moves prior to leading it. While none of the moves are harder than 5.8/9, a bad day will be had if you fall prior to the first bolt.
