This route is a classic, with awesome bouldery moves. Start below a large obvious hueco about ten feet up. Very powerful moves lead you out of the roof, but into difficult campusy moves before reaching a few good left hand side pulls. A cruxy move out right to a crack gets you a good hold...but it not over yet...

Originally called "Silence", over some dust up he encountered by leaving his draws up for a while.


Right in the middle of the obvious overhang. Start below the big hueco.


4 bolts , crappy chain and bolt anchor

FA= Swiss Andy in 2000-ish. I believe it was called "Silence", over some dust up he encountered by leaving his draws up for a lil' while. Also makes a good C1 practice aid route, which was originally done prior to the bolts.

The FA of this route was done clean on aid. It has gear all the way up it.

It was bolted as a sport route with a complete disregard of local ethics by Swiss Andy w/ home made hangers. Fixed draws were removed during hunting season and returned to the owner.

Remember folks, these cliffs are on PRIVATE property, this is not Switzerland. We could lose access at any time. It is also really fucking easy to walk up to the top of the cliff and hang your pink-point draws before you give it a burn, bro.

either way it is a test piece route for the area. Would be a very hard trad lead.

Right on Paul! No cam hooks needed on this, on aid? If so, now we just need a badass trad climber for an all gear ascent with a hacksaw! There are some super hard sport climbs at the New that have been done on gear now too!
