Jake pulling the crux on Union Man

Open, with restrictions: Park on the street MORE INFO >>>


Climb a dirty slab up to the base of the roof, reach up and out to a good pocket in the roof and then power over with no feet until able to get established over the lip. Finish up blocky ledges to reach the anchors.

Bees are active on the lower portion of this climb when it's warm out so be warned!


Face to a roof right of a large left-facing corner (Some Assembly Required).


6 bolts, 2 bolt anchor

Finally a route where campusing at the gym actually has real life applicability!

I don't understand why this climb only gets 1 star in the guidebook. I think its great! Really fun climbing out of the roof and a tad mental. I enjoyed it quite a bit!
