  • Description 

    Just right of Morpheus, climb up to a left-angling crack and figure out how to stand up on the large ledge. Move over a bulge to finish on a great slab.


    7 bolts, 2-bolt anchor.

    Another fine moderate line, Wake Up Call, delivers an interesting crux after gaining a good ledge system. The move passing the second bolt can seem reachy but some inobvious foot work should make the sequence doable even for the height challenged. Very nice addition.

    The bottom deserves three stars, but the the top is out of character.

    Good climb. A nut or small cam may be useful before bolt #2.

    Great bouldery climb. Exciting moves that make you shift your hips like you're dancing on the rock. Even though the top 1/3 is uninspiring, the first 2/3 is great and worth repeating.

    A fun route with a very thin crux. Bring your edging shoes. I found this harder than some of the other 10a-10c's on the wall but just for the one very well-protected move.

    I knew this was a Bob D'Antonio routem because there were at least 4 bolts right next to bomber and obvious natural gear placements. The route is quite fun... would be a 3 star lead without the unnecessary bolts. The first 4 bolts or so are reasonably placed. After that, the rest of the bolts are next to perfectly good 0.4, 0.5, and 0.75 C4 placements. The rock on this route is perfect! I might start carrying a crowbar to clean up the mess that Bobby D made. Please don't sport bolt cracks or your bolts will get chopped.
