A short route that is very steep, especially for the City. Scramble up high to the first bolt. Easy climbing leads to an overhung wall with huge holds and large moves. After clipping the last bolt on the face, you run into the crux. Throw into a slippery under cling and attempt to mantle out the dihedral to the chains. Holds and feet are sharp without much polish. Super fun!


On the South face of Bath Rock. Sandwiched between two 11a's (Prey for Me & The Pope Got Pumped). Scramble up some ledges to belay.


5 or 6 bolts to chains.

Fun route, but way shy of 12a, especially at the City. Gets afternoon shade.

While this probably is the easiest 12 at the City, there are a couple tricky moves before pulling the lip of the roof. If you are pumped they could feel pretty desperate. Don't be nervous about the high first bolt, the climbing is only 5.8 until you get to the roof. The holds were pretty sharp and I don't think this thing sees too much traffic, so jump on it!
