Starting moves


This is a short and liberally bolted route, but fun. Climb a slightly tricky start that gets you to a slab ledge below a roof. Pull the roof on good holds.


Next route up from Strategic Placement just before you do a short scrambly section to a larger wall. Obvious bolted roof route.

Yeah worked on this with Leland W. in 08. It was bolted on lead/A0, in the rain, wind and a 35 degree winter day so yeah some of em are close together.. but they all ended up being good placements for leading. The start is tricky especially for shorties like me. I was torn on the grade to give it really.... Leland wanted to call it 11a and I thought it had some hard 10+ moves. So far the general concensus is 10c/d. Super fun short route, the roof pull makes it worth it. Called "Hurricane" I'd like to hear what more people think... cheers

Hey Frank,

Climbed this yesterday and came across this post looking for the rating. I would agree with the c/d rating, although short. Two really fun cruxes with the first being hardest. The roof pull was really fun, and reminded me of the Bone in Leavenworth.

thanks for setting it.

Hey thanks Scott. Haven't visited the site for some time. Ya the first moves are definetly the toughest on this route. Im glad Leland dragged me out there to put it up.
