Girly Man (pronounced with a Governator accent as in "U duuu naaught drive z Huuummah? u are juist ah Gerliie Maan") starts on vertical terrain and up through a slight bulge on largish sloping holds. After clipping the first bolt work your way straight up to the second bolt (crux). Pass the second bolt just to the right, to a no hands rest before stepping up into an interesting fluted section and the third bolt. Stem up the flutes to an amazing deep jug. Clip the fourth bolt and finish with a couple exciting moves up and right to the anchor.


Girly Man is located on the far left side of the Boardwalk and is the first route you will encounter on this cliff.


4 bolts and closed shuts with 'biners.

A fun, warm up route. Good feet and holds before it gets to this smooth chute. We used pinches and stemming up this part to the third bolt where there is a really GOOD jug.

A very fun start to climbing at this crag.
