BETA PHOTO: Super Bowl Wall 1 Hamster Forever 5.10a 2 Where's...


A short, easy gear route on an otherwise all-bolt wall. Start at the base in a shallow, irregular left-facing corner and follow a jagged crack until it ends, and then follow the remaining dihedral to the anchors. Gear for the first half, two bolts for the second half.

The route doesn't look like much but does have a couple of fun moves on it.


At the left of the overhanging Super Bowl roof, between two bolted routes (Hamster Forever and Sick at 17000).


A small nut for the start, a couple of cams .5" to 2.5", 2 bolts, chain anchors (shared with Sick at 17000).

Fun little climb. The bolts really aren't necessary, though. I used a smallish nut and purple and green Camalots on the lower section. If you like chossy quartzite cracks, this gets two stars. If not, it gets one.

Fun warm up climb. It deserves its 5.6 rating. Although, the start is a bit scary, with the big ledge behind you. It shares chains with another easy route, making it a good top rope to set up for beginners.

Continues to be extremely chossy with a lot of small loose stuff. It will be hard on your rope to TR this route, the rock is very sharp. Like Tristan, we used a purple and green Camalot, as well as a smaller nut. The chossiness adds to the adventure rating for sure.
