Eric Ruljancich reaches one of the few buckets on ...

Description 

Start by stemming up to a bolt approx 15' up. Clip it and figure out a tricky move to establish yourself on the face (5.10+). Head straight up toward the bulge placing gear and clipping a bolt. Pull the bulge and continue to the anchor.

With its great rock and climbing this route would easily earn three stars in LDE except that it doesn't top out on one of the large towers and it is relatively short. Still, it's great fun and a solid challenge for a well-rounded climber.


Location 

This climb lies in the "back alley" found by walking up into the alley and turning right. Look for a bolt on the left wall about 15' up.


Protection 

Singles to #2 Camalot, 3 bolts.

A really cool route! If only it were longer and had nice summit to top out on. The base of the route is completely shaded...good for a warm day when your belayer is seeking refuge from the sun.

Really fun climbing up a nifty crack to a steep finish on bolts.

No harder than 10c if you don't stuff a cam in the finger lock.

I feel fortunte to have got up it without the benefit of a colorful helmet.

Geir had a huge part in my success. He was incredibly encouraging and patient while I worked on it and maybe even more excited than me when I got clean. Also, much thanks to David for the photos!

After watching others at the crux, I feel like the difficulty is a strong function of reach. If unable to reach the finger crack before stepping across, a balancy intermediate move involving a very small dish and a so-so crimp awaits you.

i have to agree. with my stubby short -38 ape index t. rex arms i just can't reach that finger crack, so i have to use the crimp and dish. for me the crux feels like 11-. in any case you've got a bomber cam protecting you so go up there and have a blast. it's a fun route!
