At the chains atop tomato man.


Just left of the Road Kill Wall's small separating groove/gully is this short, featured route. A very well protected line with great clipping stances. A great first lead for someone new to climbing.


2 anchors at the top and about 6 or 7 draws.

The route is called Tomato Man, as in "is that a corpse in the road or a box of smashed tomatoes, man?"

This route cannot be harder than 5.4. I've climbed harder 5.4s than this. This is a great first lead route. In fact, probably the best first lead I have ever seen. A 5.3 with bolts every 3 or 4 feet, it cannot get any easier than that.

Climbed this route without knowing the rating as it wasn't in my book. Super easy and I agree it would make for a perfect first lead.

I added some chains to the anchors. It previously had a couple of rapid links but they twisted the rope and caused problems. Enjoy!

Super easy climb--but really, some of the holds are super fun--great for kids (the kids we took climbing for the first time said this was their favorite).
