Negotiating the crux on Wonderstuff.

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

Description 

Climb a vertical to bulging face just left of the drill marks and then up into a clean, right-facing corner. Deft footwork and a bit of liebacking will see you through to the exit moves which lead to anchors on a sloping ledge.

A decent route that's yet another good warm-up for this area packed with quality routes.

Location 

Located about 50' left of Tangerine Dream, a prominent orange streak of rock in the area, 35' right of Whammy and just left of an obvious section of drilled rock.

Protection 

7 bolts, chain anchors

Watch out for the loose undercling at about 1/3 height. It is possible to pass the hold with no increase in difficulty.

A nice sustained route for the grade.

A guy told me this was 5.9... He must have been thinking of a different route. I donno, I think this one is 10a/b maybe. It's definitely not 10c.

If I'm not mistaken, that undercling is now gone. There's a mark in chalk that reads 'Bad X' and underneath that, the word 'Fine' is written, perhaps where the flake used to be. Anyway, this climb was a gem. The layback about halfway up is totally pure and great fun. It's a pity it's not longer, but I definitely recommend it as a warmup!

This is one of my favorite routes at the Quarry. Too bad it's not as long as Trundle Trophy or Tangerine Dream, but it's still a good warm-up route.

If you go right and up the jugs of the arete it makes the climb a bit softer. If you go straight up and into the book its going to be a solid climb at the grade. Negotiating the crack/dihedral is for sure a battle of the pump. I got a lucky onsight, but can for sure see where others will get stuck. Have fun.

Pretty fun route... I'd give it a low 10c... don't get suckered to the right when you get the the short dihedral near the top...

Does anybody know what the 2nd pitch that goes left of the anchors is rated/named? is it Maximizer?

Fun route with good moves. Sustained for the grade. Careful about some loose rock in the crack when you get to the dihedral.
