Comments: Seems some confusion in this here MP route guide about this route vs The 5.10- corner.

Three fools route location is around to the right out of view from the Dr Carl/wiggin worm area. It is in the vicinity of "Ernie used to box"

Comments: The photos are of two different routes.

The corner is in sight of wigglin worm and Dr Carl. It is Route #15 in the Bloom 2nd edition "Unnamed 5.10-"

The other photo labelled as three fools is further around to the right

Comments: Don't know if its wear from traffic, but a couple tight #2 C4s fit fine before the upper #0.75 section.

Comments: Quality route well worth doing.

Seems a sandbag for 5.10+, harder to me than 5.11- routes like pente or lift kit. Not as sustained as excuse station, has more useful rests, but two crux sections seem harder. And the right wall is pretty radically overhanging!

70m Rope super stretcher rap to the ground, but easily reaches the big ledge at the start of excuse station. Be careful.

Comments: 70m just reaches.

And indeed be careful with the rope on rap. Might be better to saddlebag rather than throw. I had a rope end fall back behind the pillar and get stuck. Luckily got it free after messing with it and ascending back up a ways to get well above and pull it straight up.

Comments: Yes, you are right. I checked Levin and Rossiter's books, and Briggs' variation stays in the initial corner until traversing left at the final angled ledge to the anchor. The description is for the Revely-Hunter route.
I think a G rating is a bit optimistic, but I am glad you felt secure on it!

Comments: A rare route in CCC, really solid at the grade, and with engaging runouts! Seemed like true 5.10d-5.10+, continuous and committing in the 5.10 range. Not really PG-13, but compared to the usual CCC close bolting is a bit on the PG side if unlike Ivan you go with only draws.
