Soft for the guidebook, I'd actually call it more of a 5.9 than 5.10a (but the guidebook says 10a and my partners disagree with my personal assessment). Mostly bolted, and interestingly so. This is a fun climb that can be a little heady, causes one to think a bit, and requires route-finding skills.

Follow the bolts to a blank section, traverse left over the arrete / right-facing corner and follow the line essentially straight to the chains.


Very near the right-most section of Hogwild, just up to the right of where the path meets the cliff.


Mostly bolted, but bring a couple of small to medium sized cams for the middle-upper section.

Nice route...well done, Petch. I think if you'd done it a few times, it would seem like 5.9, but the first time up, it's a 10a.

I remember there being some interesting movements/body positioning. Fun route.

Definitely not 50 Ft. as posted above. Make sure you have a 60 and getting down will stretch the rope almost all the way.

It's about 90' and nearly runout with wild traverses out left onto the buttress up to 15' above a bolt (or more if you don't get in a cam or two between the 4th and 5th bolts). The crux is a funky mantel just above the first bolt--my partner and I both thought it was real hard for 5.10a. If you get above that you should be okay.

There are two ways to go at the crux, high or low. High is 10a, low is 5.9. There's probably a 10a move getting up to the crux however...I'd rate the whole climb 10a.

Don't go high right at the second bolt. Puts you in high 11 territory which isn't that fun when you thought you were cruising a 10a. Overall a great face climb with balancy moves that make you think a little. The bolts are far apart by sport standards but are all brand new and the falls would be scary but very safe.There are two decent gear placements in the flake. Without those it's definitely R. Good route to work on your head game.
