Pluck and plunder the pleasantly plump and plentiful plates left of the leaning crack. Then juice the jugs as they send you on your way to the anchors. Much fun. Highly recommended for the novice leader.

A long draw on the 4th bolt might be helpful to reduce some of the rope drag.

The huge block to the right of the anchors will come off soon so be aware. Its moving alot. I ithink someone should knock it off one day to clean the route up alil. Other than that its a cool route!
Sco Bro said on March 28th, 2005
Crux is at the bottom, if you struggle with it just keep pluggin because it's a nice route.
J-Rock said on March 29th, 2005
I tried very hard to remove that block, but I was unable to dislodge it from the wall. I even put some cams and a hammer behind it to pry it off, but no luck.
J-Rock said on April 6th, 2005
Extra thanks go to Jenny Wagner and Mark Ryan. They helped to clean the route with wire brushes and did an excellent job!

The block right of the anchors is gone now.
J-Rock said on April 13th, 2005
Thanks Tim, sorry to hear about your rope. Glad nobody got hurt.
busty said on April 13th, 2005
Wow. The block was still there when I climbed this route on the morning of 4/10. I have several picture of the anchors with the block still there.
t bone said on April 19th, 2005
Busty you must be talking about something other than the original block used to clip from. I trundled it after climbing the route.
hangdog said on April 19th, 2005
You could use a long draw on the 4th bolt but I just skipped it. It's very easy climbing through there.
WhereamI said on May 24th, 2005
i agree, the 4th bolt is really unnecessary
J-Rock said on May 31st, 2005
I just skip that bolt... you are definitely not going to deck if you don't clip it. However, it is there for anyone that wants it.

Was such a great climb for the end of a very first day!!!!

I climb this route every time I'm at Bruise Bros Wall... it's so much fun! Great long warm up. Stays in the shade most of the time too bec of the big tree next to it.
bryanboonern said on September 3rd, 2005
This is the funnest route I have climbed so far at Rebel Camp. It is in the sun, however, so it gets a little toasty in the summer.
K-Dawg said on September 27th, 2005
What a fun climb. Great bolt locations, clean, and had most of it in the shade because of the huge tree beside the route (time and date dependant I guess). The small sloper section added a little variety. I also skipped the 4th bolt.
merrick said on November 3rd, 2005
great climb, skip the fourth. also even more fun by headlamp at night.
Feanor007 said on January 29th, 2006
much fun
knooper said on June 6th, 2006
Watch out for the wasp nest inside one of the pockets to the left of the start about 7-8 feet up. Can't really see it until you put your hand in it!!
Captain Bad Beta said on July 6th, 2006
This route wan't my favorite of the weekend. A nice warm up or warm down I guess. Huge holds the whole way up... lots of ledges to rest on.
p0bray01 said on July 11th, 2006
fun route. Great way to end the day. The little overhanging thin section was great for my newbie leader girlfriend. Fun route...Some parts kinda reminded me of Creature feature type jugs. Good lead for the beginner! You can even pull a few crack moves at the start.
Josephine said on June 13th, 2007
this was my first 9 lead. it makes for a fun warm up!
soccerfast007 said on July 24th, 2007
very classic climb in my opinion. great for your lead head, skip the 4th bolt to reduce drag, or clip it, downclimb (walk back to the bolt) and undo it, then continue if you like. fun bulges to pull 5 stars

Meringue said on March 7th, 2008
Wonderfully fun, beautiful setting. Good warm up for routes to the right. Lots of no-hands on the way up. The "crack crux" at the beginning is silly to me. It is actually very easy - no more difficult than the rest. Mind over matter I guess. This route does not seep badly
Buzz said on March 16th, 2008
Great climb.
uberwhipper said on May 16th, 2008
This was the tallest route I had climbed to date. Easy climbing in the 5.8- range I would think, but the length of the route adds a little difficulty.
petey said on May 16th, 2008
Really fun cruise to warm up before tackling the harder things. My friend did it for his first 5.9 lead and thoroughly liked it-good clips.
FujManiac said on July 15th, 2008
there is some sort of bee/wasp making it's home at the top of this route. They won't bother you, but you should be wised. If you're allergic, you may want to think twice before doing this route.
kharvey said on December 31st, 2008
Fun route. I think the bottom is harder than it looks; the rest of the route gets easier as you go.
Barnacle Ben said on September 8th, 2009
Probably the most fun 5.9 I've been on. Skipped 4th bolt and agree that that was the best option. 'Too good to be true' holds the whole way up. The section up to the first large ledge does not stay dry but is still climbable wet. The rest stayed dry in heavy rain.
ender52 said on March 26th, 2010
People need to stop putting X's on this thing. With the amount of climbers this thing sees every weekend, any lose holds are long gone.
donargento said on February 4th, 2012
Owesome rote, really enjoyable, a solid 9 with very good holes, high fun
rjackson said on February 26th, 2012
Awkward start. The route comes into its own a little further on though.
ddchil01 said on June 8th, 2017
Great climb with crux being at the bottom of the route for sure; however there are 8 or 9 x marks throughout the route which make it a tad more difficult
DrRockso said on June 9th, 2017
Nothing that is X'ed on Send Me On My Way is coming off anytime soon. If someone would like to bring a brush ad a spray bottle of water you can remove them.
climb2core said on June 9th, 2017
Ha ha, I'm gonna put a big X on every hold and set up the video camera. LOL

Is there anyway we can send you both on your way back to the shitty lives you both lived before becoming the police academy of the route police.

X marks the spot just like your tramp stamp climb2core?
