Seasonal Raptor Closure: Noontime and Midnight Rock MORE INFO >>>


Nettlesome is the located between Perils of Pauline and Playin' Possum, the middle of three routes nestled near the top of the approach trail.

P1. Nettlesome starts with some tricky moves off the ground to a mentally challenging step up and onto a lip midway up the face. I find this the crux of the climb. The climb then swings right and back left as you tackle a steeper section just below the anchor. (5.9+)

P2. If you do the second pitch, the character of the climb changes. The second pitch is thin 5.8 friction climbing, with an emphasis on friction. The bolting is safe, but had my attention.


Bolts. Chained anchors.
