Description:

To locate this route, find the short 4 bolt sport climb on the green slab. Walk to the right approximately 15 yds, passing 1 other sport climb. Climb up a series of big ledges to reach the start of the climb. Climb up the face passing 4 bolts. Trend up and to the left after the 4th bolt to reach the shuts. The first ascent party did not use the shallow right facing corner system off to the right of the route. Very nice slab climb with very good feet and small crimps for handholds.

4 out of 5 stars Route update info

Spoke to the FA party in May (2016). They reported they felt this was 5.10-, and is named "Waltzing Matilda". The runout between the fourth bolt and the anchors is relatively easy ground, hence why there is no 5th bolt.

4 out of 5 stars Good climb!

First one of the season for me. I thought it was more of a 10a just because of all the crimpers, but thats just me. This was my third ever lead and I made it. Overall good, fun climb!

5 out of 5 stars I cried on the last couple moves, but I did it.

Felt proud of myself afterwards.

4 out of 5 stars Fun

If this is the climb im thinking it is than it is one of my favorites at the grove. Very finger intensive. If it was sustained would def be harder than a 5.9
