This is a sustained, high quality one-pitch face route at the right edge of the Weeping Wall. There are long runouts getting up to the first bolt, and going from the second bolt up to the top. This route will force you to think about your footwork!


two bolts, plus gear for the belay at the base, and perhaps for a placement or two before the face climbing starts

The crux on this one is probably 20 feet out from the last bolt.

Yup! Got to about 3 feet from topping out on this one, but downclimbed the whole thing because I didn't want to risk the 40 foot fall onto the ledge.

This route is badly bolted. Why put the bolt after the crux when there are stances to bolt before the crux? Purposely runout routes make crappy routes IMO... might as well solo it.

Kudos to Kenji and Johnny. The days of balls are sadly over. Awesome route way back then.
