Dan Hare and Stella Adams, July 2002
7 plus anchors
This is the bolted route between Father Figure and Splitting Hares described in Greg Hand's July 10, 2003 comment on Centennial. The 11c grade is an approximation; it may be easier....
Climb to the first bolt on Father Figure, then diagonal right past another bolt into a large right-facing corner. The difficulties begin at the third bolt where the corner narrows and steepens. Stem precariously up past the fourth and fifth bolts to a small roof. Clip the bolt over the roof and crank it on mediocre hands (crux). Make another dicey move to pull into balance below the final slab. After clipping the last bolt, one or two moves in a finger crack lead to the anchors. Lower 60'.
Although the climbing from the third bolt to the anchors is sustained, the bolts are only 3'-5' apart.

while Bill was belaying Adam on this a car came out of control down the canyon and crashed into Bill's car and totaled it. Luckily the driver crawled out of her flipped vehicle with just a little blood. What a crazy day. The climb was pretty cool, thought it was a bit easier than the grade but i was just following
This felt pretty good to do. It's a fun route for sure. Technical and interesting. Tricky, but the crux can definitely be done with pure thuggery if you're interested in hanging on some crimps. Feet are really important for the less forearm-inclined amongst us.
