Location: NC : Cooks Wall : Cookbook area : Grace Under Pressure (5.10b)

Comments: This route is forced. In reality it's a 5.9 that is bolted to try and force you to climb 5.10. The natural, more obvious, more aesthetic feature is to the climber's right of the upper bolts. Twice I pulled over a couple bulges on obvious holds only to find a bolt 6 feet to my left. I ended up skipping 2 bolts and protected one of these sections with a cam.

Comments: Such a pity. This could have been a really classic 1-bolt route and it wouldn't even be R-rated. As it is now, it's just a little route with no jizm left. The anchor situation will be fixed this year. In the meantime, I've left a delta quicklink on the retro bolt that is 18 inches below the retro anchor. Please use it as a backup on the final lower off.

Comments: Route length is closer to a 100' and one can lower to the ground with a 60 meter rope.

Comments: Free soloed on-sight on July 4, 1998 at age 21. Took me a while to commit to the crux but it felt clean once I did. Later that night in the Awhanee Meadows I made out with two girls from Alabama who were rolling on ecstasy. Good times.
