Description:

Face climbing on the arete next to Columbian Crack. A little run out but really fun. The first bolt is akward and kinda high. Need a 70m to top rope or lower. But can walk off. NOTE: Sling the large boulder in the chimney to the left to avoid groundfall until you clip the first bolt.

3 out of 5 stars Spicy for sure.

If you are confident on sloped holds its no big deal. Had my heart racing a bit with only 4 bolts in 100ft...

1 out of 5 stars Just Say No

By far the softest route I climbed to date at the City..felt more like 5.7-8. Not near the experience that Rye Crisp is. That Just Say No is at 5.9 and Just Say Go is 5.10a is a big contrast. Several grades seperate these climbs.

3 out of 5 stars pretty fun

good 9. some spots are a bit run out. i would definitely place protection before the first bolt. not a had move but a fall would be bad.

4 out of 5 stars "Just Say No"

This was actually my first 5.9 lead ever. I am pretty new to the sport and was able to use my 70 meter rope on this one. I loved the route although the first bolt was a little intimidating. My friends laughed when I said, "I can't see the next bolt!" There is about 50 feet from the last bolt to the chains. Pretty fun route.
