Today, while cranking the above mentioned "boulder problem," a sizeable handhold broke off, sending me flying. There is now a small crimp where this hold was, and I don't think it increased the difficulty too bad, but be advised. Also, several feet and edges broke off as well. This whole wall needs some heavy traffic.

Fun route. Please avoid trampling or placing your packs upon the wild iris patch to the right of this climb.

The boulder problem was pretty difficult for me for some reason. I eventually got passed it after using some weird squirming technique. Maybe it's because I'm too fat...

It's not a boulder problem, it's a 10b move.

Whatever it was, it was cool-- I found 2 ways to do it and they were both TOTALLY SWEET. Like ninjas.

Loose flakes were scary. Shouldn't someone knock them off??

You do not need to use any of the loose looking stuff to climb this route. Removing some that stuff would be very difficult. Several climbers climbed the route the day it was put up and all them thought was allright the way it was.

I thought it was fun, especially the "boulder part," but a peice of a crimp broke off towards the top sending my buddy flying. It didn't change anything however, it was just fun to watch.

The ratings at Muir are way outta control! You guys look like a bunch of candy-asses giving these things grades like this! 5.10b

Smedley is a candied ass pussy and I saw him take on this route!

Hey Smedley, is there big difference between a 10c and 10b. When i bolted it I thought could be anywhere from 10a to 10c, but others that climbed it said they thought is was 10c. You better watch you are calling candy-ass.

J-Rock said on May 10th, 2005
What is a "candy-ass" anyway? Is it a person who has only climbed 4 5.11's at the Red and yet claims to be an expert about grading routes? Or is it a person who has climbed more than 400 routes at the Red and grades something 10c instead of 10b (even though the consensus of the climbing community has voted on 10c)? Hmm... seems to me that Smedley doesn't know what the fuck he's talking about!

Another fantastic moderate! Great job...this one is much better than it looks! Certainly some form of a 5.10...Personally I'd put it at 10a/b, but regardless it's good!

dont worry about the bottom part of the roof with the dont touch "X" on it anymore, i forgot it was there and while trying to get past the roof i kicked it off almost killing my belayer, it scared the shit out of me and he had to finish it. so no worrys i pulled the rest of the lost rock off, so have fun now! -peteypablo

WATCH OUT FOR THE HOLLOW SOUNDING A FEELING FLAKE AT THE BOTTOM, just above the first bolt, i think if some big dude tried a lie back, it might pull off!!! my better half lead this one and as usual she made it look easy, i thought the crux was going thru the small roof, no more beta than that!!! she says, a definite fun, must do 5.10+ climb at Rebel, recomended....

I agree, I didnt send that one because of the giant top of the bottom flake, I'm still a relative noob, so to be honest when that 5' by 3' by 8" peice of rock rocked back towards me, I was scared shittles. I had a nice reflection of my life upon my return to earth though! But I'm still determined to do it!

Superb route! Finally got on it this weekend and is now one of my favorite climbs at Bruise Bros Wall. Fun moves through the roof esp if you have tiny fingers like mine! BWAHAHA!

not a bad route. easy fun moves to begin, easy fun moves to end and one tough move joining them.

20 votes on 10b. Should it have a letter now?

Well bolted very nice route. Wish I would have tried finishing from the jug above the chains instead of the crimp below, and for what its worth 10b seems pretty solid.

agdenm2 said on January 4th, 2008
agreed kirker. in retrospect, clipping from the jug above the chains would have saved me quite a bit of time and energy, as well as a fall.

Brentucky said on September 29th, 2008
i didn't find any crimps or other face holds to help pull the "very small roof," but that crack gives you what you need for a solid 10b move

There is still a dinner plate-sized plate with an 'x' on it at around the second bolt. It was tempting to pull on it, but I knocked on it and skipped it. I checked it out on the way down and man was I glad I didn't pull on it. Someone's belayer is gonna end up wearing a dinner plate rock for a hat. Other than that, the roof was the highlight of this one. Took me a couple tries to find the right holds. Throwing for the monster jug way up left was fun.

A lot of fun... My favorite on the wall for sure.

Pretty cool route, definitely worth doing.

That plate needs to come down or get a glue makeover. Could take out your belay buddy and sever your rope in the process. Love/hate this climb, its inspiring me to actually eat right and get in shape.

Awesome route. My favorite on the wall so far. The 'X'd' plate was still in place and easy to avoid.
