Harley Learning Curve and Softail Meets Guardrail.


This route climbs the obvious left-leaning dihedral on the right side the West face of Reese's Pieces. It starts with steep face moves protected by bolts down low, then it gains the ledge just below the dihedral. One final bolt protects entry moves into the dihedral. Stems and opposition moves are needed on both sides of the dihedral as you work your way through the crux early. Cruise up and reach for the big jug ledge on the right side, then finish to the 2-bolt anchor.


5 bolts, a 1" cam up high, and 1 runner for the bolt at the base of the dihedral.
