Pete leading


Find the trifecta of 'In the Pink', 'Quickdraw Moves to Hollywood', and 'Space Warp' down and left of the Big Roof, and then walk back right towards the Big Roof. This is the second bolted line you come to (the first being 'Why Doesn't Anybody Climb This'?). It's a decent 10 but like all the climbs in this vicinity, doesn't get enough traffic so there might be some loose stuff up higher. I thought 'Multiple Stab Wounds' and 'Why Doesn't...' were better routes but if you're going to the trouble of setting up in this area why not do this one also. It's a good afternoon to set up on 'Why Doesn't...' and move right and try to do as many as possible in a row as they are all moderate and fairly short.

Bolts. Please use your own gear for top rope. Please bring an extra biner and if the ones up top look bad or don't easily clip or shut, please replace it. It's good karma.

The anchors here are two rusty open shuts about 3 feet apart so make sure you have your own gear if you plan on top roping.

New anchors installed May 2015. Vegetation and loose rock removed. Ready for some love.

Well there's less loose rock now: my climber pulled down some bigger than fist sized rocks toward me last weekend. The new anchors are higher than the originals by a couple feet, so now you climb into more chossy stuff than the originals.
