BETA PHOTO: this shows the first couple clips


Start up the slightly overhanging crack with large jugs on either side. A hard clip off of an ironically great jug leads to bouldery moves till the top of the headwall. From here the climbing gets easier and more fun on jugs to the right of the crack.


This route is on the NW Face and is right of Monster Quest.


7 bolts + anchors

Tuko Pamoja in Swahili means that “We are all in this together”. This is my daughter's high school cross country team slogan.

The route ends at the base of a steep section where it could be extended upward.

I thought about anchors past the break where they are currently located but figured there were only 2 or 3 more moves of easy climbing on the headwall which would offer no further difficulty particularly after a hands free ledge. I also like the current anchor placement since it has its own set of anchors without having to have a communal anchor like it would if it was extended to the top. I really liked this route though the upper part was a pain to clean and I assume it could still use a little bit more. I meant to bolt the line just to the right of it, but moved on to another cliff before doing so.

Lots of fun! The crux is at the bottom. The upper section is a bit dirty. Note that the (climber's) righthand bolt in the anchor is loose.

Patrick, Yeah I knew about the loose right bolt. It has been loose since I placed it. It was end of the day and the drill lost most of the battery charge so I ended up grounding the bolt out in the bottom of the hole when i pounded it in. I was able to get it to expand, but couldn't get it flush with the rock due to the extra unexpected length. I kept meaning to go back and fix it, but that was the last route I bolted on the crag and never got back there with the drill. I'll get it replaced next time out there though.

First time back on lead in 2 years, fun climbing! This place has cleaned up a ton since my last visit a few years ago, felt reasonably solid. Also not too hot despite it being July due to a nice breeze.

Hi all, new to contributing so let me know if I'm off base here.

Led this route yesterday and noticed some spinner bolts along the way. Decided, based on fall risk, that I was okay continuing, but in hindsight, probably a dumb idea (only my second lead outside so still learning, would love suggestions on how people assess risk of placed gear and how to know when to say something on this forum).

Anyway, bolts 2 and 3 seemed like they needed tightening, and we aren't sure who to notify. We placed tape on the second one to encourage others to think twice before going up.

Would love help knowing what to do, who to advise, etc.

Lovely route by the way, stays in the shade till about 1pm (except the top) so was still fun as a summer route. Great for beginner outside leading, I felt very comfortable, aside from those two bolts.
