Ground Control to Gumby One

A variation to the white dike route was installed about the same time as the dike, and it runs to the same anchor at the top of the dike. Chase the bolts on reasonable, solid, greyish stone. Sets up an easy TR for the dike if you are so inclined. Take a brush along.
Half a dozen draws and a rope.

On the right, it drops straight to the ground from the dike anchor.

Braden Peters was the guy who bolted and climbed this line, Richard. Have a nice day!

This route is dirty, with some loose stuff, but actually offers really fun and a bit stout, overhanging, roof moves that one normally doesn't find on 5.9s.

Very fun. Only 5.9? A couple pieces of chain would improve the anchor since this will no doubt get traffic when folks are in the area.

If this is 5.9, the first pitch of Wild Child is 5.2.
Getting off the ground was the technical crux, but it's dirty and steep all the way up. And don't blow the 3rd clip...

I agree with Roth. Harder than 9 and harder than the first pitch of Wild Child.

Felt a lot harder than 5.9.
