This is a slab, not a jug route. Huge feet, but that usually means the hands are called crimpy.

This was my first lead climb outside. It was great and hope to go back and do it again.

This was my first lead route, very good climb, only one spot that was fairly hard that was pretty spooky. Do carry long draws when cliping into the chains, or carry runners, the chains are a tad to high.

The chains are fine. You can sit down, no handed style, and do what you want up there.

the same person poured concrete in roadside attraction. such a waste.
Papatrad said on May 4th, 2006
The first bolt is still there and still loose. I've led this several times. The middle of this thing always manages to get my blood pumping. If I fall on a 5.7 sport, that will be the spot!

The direct start is fun and adds to the difficulty.

great route, i imagine i will have fun leading it someday when i quit shilly shallying around on TR following the footsteps, hand holds, and beta from my ropegun roomies.
dbarless said on May 21st, 2007
Good route for beginning leaders, there is an interesting section about 3 or 4 bolts up that will open your eyes...The first bolt is a spinner, but it's not a big deal...Overall a fun climb
soccerfast007 said on June 11th, 2007
forced to lead it yesterday climbing with a less experienced climber (which is rare), fun lead, ledger line appears to be the same height yet it is listed as 20 ft so? good climb, stay cool get your lead head goin'
tunedvwgti said on August 24th, 2007
This was my first lead climb...It was a lot of fun...Just like everyone else who is new, I got spooked in the middle, but climbed it well... I was amazed how much harder it is while [email protected]

the first anchor spins around
Jollygreen68 said on May 8th, 2008
Slab route, nothing too spectacular, a little harder than a 5.7. Middle was the hardest part. Not a fan of the route or the entire wall at this section of Roadside... all slabey routes, no feet, no fun. But that's just my two cents.
Myke Dronez said on May 8th, 2008
WTF- First of all, I thought it has been made clear that there is no slab in the Red- and second, there are feet ALL over the routes on that wall, especially this one- maybe they're just a little smaller than a jib.
JR said on May 8th, 2008
Gee Jolly green did you think it was overhanging when you put your shoes on? Only to find out "hey wait a darn minute. This little stinker is a slab. I don't even like slab" You walked right past overhanging routes to get to this one.
pigsteak said on May 9th, 2008
it's a troll jr...a troll....gotta one climbs at the slab wall except noobs.
bcombs said on May 9th, 2008
Shhh... Cmon guys, if Jolly Green has his way my points count will double. Everything in the Red is stout for the grade!

first bolt still spinning
pigsteak said on February 17th, 2009
first bolt or first hanger? big difference.
Barnacle Ben said on February 17th, 2009
First hanger. Bolt wasn't spinning.
possum2082 said on February 26th, 2009

ahab said on February 26th, 2009
street guy #1: "whatcha got holmes?" street guy #2: "whatchoo need boss? i got bolts, uncut supa chalk, spring jammers - anything you want cuzz!" seriously though, leave that hanger be. twas born to spin.
