Description 

This climb is fun. There is no real crux just solid 5.10 climbing from the moment you start until the last move up to the anchors.

The climbing is mainly on small flakes, but it is mixed in with some stemming halfway up.


Location 

Just left of Burning Desire (5.12c)


Protection 

11 bolts, 2 ring anchor

Still a bit crispy in spots, but fairly long with interesting moves. No real crux, as noted, but if pumped the last few moves to the anchors can be a problem.

My first ever climb at Riverside Quarry. Found this to be a terrific warm-up since it is relatively long, moderate, consistent, and yet populated with two or three good rest spots. Great Climb!

I think right at the 2nd to the last bolt is the crux for people that are 5'5 or shorter, getting the jug about it requires a stemming move. And yes if you are pump getting to the anchors is tough

Fun, fun route. Pumpy at end. Moves are not that hard. Rating is more for a sustained, pumpy finish.

Really enjoyable climb. Nice line, good holds. Glued in holds abound but that doesnt make it bad!

A large suit case size chunk of rock was recently removed from the left side of the "crux" stem because it was loose which changes the sequence. Still a great route!
