  • Description 

    Also known as "Corkscrew"

    Start on a blunt arete to the right of a corner and go up to four bolts. Step left onto a large grassy ledge then up another face with four bolts to the chain anchors.


    Around the corner from "It's Not A Cruise" and "True Value" follow the cliff to a washed out and dirty platform like belay spot.


    8 Bolts

    All protection bolts have been replaced. The anchor was also replaced to a simpler setup on the face in a section of rock that seems to be the most solid.

    Is this route really 10a? I always thought it was 5.8 or 5.9 at most.

    Didn't really like this route... The climbing is not consistent, the ramp is kind of annoying. The rock above the ramp looks a lot cooler than it turned out to be. Maybe worth it if nothing else is available, but otherwise there are some better routes at the grade here.
