This route involves a bouldery start through sloping edges that will bring the pump early. Stickclip highly recommended. After a series of spicy clipping stances you reach a ledge for a break. Notice the fossilized bamboo stick on the rock next to you! Take a break before climbing sustained slopy edges and pockets all the way to the top. Crux moves occur at bolt 5, and don't expect a break at the end!

The Dude Abides will surprise those dependent upon the 3rd edition RRG guidebook - the rating of 5.11a is usually discredited. To those who believe in the 5.11a rating, "obviously, you're not a golfer."


Upon approaching Chica Bonita Wall, it is after the 3 short sport routes. It is the first tall sport climb up a slightly overhung face to the right of a corner.


7 bolts with 2 bolted anchors.
