BETA PHOTO: Tootsie Roll and Under the Table


This is the climb immediately left of Under the Table. It goes up a narrow buttress that looks like two Tootsie Rolls side by side. I don't know the real name of the climb, but I'm calling it Tootsie Roll in preference to "Unknown 5.8".

Locate the smooth tan slab of Under the Table, and go 20' left to find the start of Tootsie Roll.Climb 25' up easy rock to the first bolt. Continue up the buttress to the top.

Nothing special, but an OK warm-up climb.


3 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.

I haven't led anything at this difficulty (my most recent "hard" lead was 5.7), so this one felt great. Nice, fun little route on super positive holds. Great for beginners.

Nice easy lead, not even polished like others of the grade here. Beginners should bring some gear though. Not many bolts....

Be ready for (typical) runout to get to first anchor 20+ feet up! Otherwise lots o' fun!
Nice positive holds even as it got warmer....

This route has a pretty high first bolt, but it's a really easy climb up to the first bolt. After that, the grade is more 5.8ish. This route has some great holds and really fun moves, and 5.8 seems pretty accurate on grading. The anchor seems to be in a bit of a weird spot (I wish it was ~1.5 ft. higher), but it's OK. Rap rings are available at the anchor.
