The next sport route to the left begins on a vertical face left of a large hemlock. Make use of the many underclings and this route will be a walk in the park. There is a short right leaning crack in the middle of this route and a few sloper moves on the face above. Then climb into the hueco and, you guessed it, clip the anchors from a big undercling.
Moves: Bouldery or Technical
Descent: Fixe Ring Anchors

This thing is pretty sweet, but it could use a bolt just a bit lower..... if you blow the opening sequence you are destined for the the Death Stump below!

Good movement throughout. It took me 3 times to figure out the start. The "Thinderclinger" move was really cool and the movement going into and out of the high waterslot was really fun.

crux is at the start, cool side pull to reach the first bolt... don't recommend trying it if wet

Seemed pretty beta intensive but once the code was cracked everyone sent. Good moves all the way.

this climb taught me once again to shut my mouth about "holds must have broke," "what a sandbag," etc. nice beta find dronez! this thing felt like a 5.hard at first, but really fun and not too hard at all with the proper beta! would be one helluva onsight for anyone climbing near the grade!

WOW... this was fun. probably one of the best 10c rated climbs i've done. The beginning was beta intensive so i blew my first send. The real fun for me was the layback up near the top... great climb.

Great route. It packs 4 different styles of climbing in its 60ft.

This is the best 5.10 i've ever done at the Red, it climbs like a 12 but on 5.10 holds. We even escaped the crowds from rocktoberfest at Coyote cliff, had the whole crag to ourselves

Top 3 favorite routes. Has so many different techniques. Not one boring move.

I agree a fun one.. that move is crazy, unique for a 5.10 for sure!

really good climb. thunderclinger move down low was cool, but i actually liked the slopey section up top a bit more. also has a crux move that i think would be pretty stout for the height challenged.

Awesome route! Can't believe I didn't get over here until now. A variety of climbing that's great.
