This is presently the dirtiest route on the rock but would clean up nicely if it were really brushed down. I an not sure that climbing alone will do it, as climbers of different heights would want to flag/smear in different places and the wall is presently quite covered in dusty lichen.

Start up on hard moves (high foot) to pass a bulge on sidepulls and do more of the same to struggle to the top. Sidepulls, body English, slopers and opposition eventually land you up and left to a 2-bolt anchor with chains.

Please take a brush and clean this thing on the way down when you lower - it will add to the potential for enjoyment for all future parties.


This is the right-most route on the upper (West) face of Retirement Rock. Just to the left are the "twin" 5.11- routes that share a first bolt.


4 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor with chain.
