June Voluntary Climbing Closure and Seasonal Raptor Closure MORE INFO >>>


This is a very worthwhile route to do if in the area. It makes a great warm-up for one of the super classic W. Face routes. Nice face and arete moves on good rock.


Starts on a blunt arete just left of Jerry's Kids. Look for the bolts. At the fifth bolt traverse right across a slab and finish on Jerry's Kids using its last protection bolt. Finish out right on a nice ledge with a good anchor. We were able to rap back down on a single 70m.


six good bolts on the route but you will also need TCU's and small to medium stoppers.

This route is much more of a "perfect warm up" than its route to the right Jerry's Kids. Starts out with amazing arete climbing, moving back and forth on the arete for 5 bolts. A super interesting climb with just enough spice at the top to keep things interesting. DO IT. And maybe if it was too easy, continue up avalon or brokedown palace.
