Description:

This route is to the climber's right of Swingtime and Footloose, a Capen classic with a fun finish. Watch out for loose rock (hence the name). there are 3 popular variations to this route. the left route is a balance move to a big reach before the roof (dyno for the short people), the middle line with a balance move off the cave, and our personal favorite, the sloper & crimp start on the right. all 3 variations keep the route interesting

3 out of 5 stars If you climb the correct line.

If you climb the right route this route is really more of an 11 something. Id say b maybe. Its to the left of all that crappy loose rock. The reason the below recorded ascent was stating the route had crumbly rock IS BECAUSE NO ONE CLIMBS THAT SPOT meaning that it not the route right?........ right. LOL. Any ways This route is just to the right of swing time and foot loose as mentioned above and has a crux about 8 feet under where you top rope should be anchored at. Great route. huge reach to nothing but a nubbins. try bumping from the nubbins or just throwing the whole distance if your a monkey. many variations for the start but please, dont CLIMB ON LOOSE ROCK AND HURT SOMEONE...... ? doesnt make much sense.

4 out of 5 stars after the rain

the holds starting the overhang get wet and rather muddy. sweet climb though. we did a slightly harder variation today so it was pretty good.

This didn't feel much harder than the book (5.9) It's an interesting climb, and by interesting I mean I won't voluntarily be climbing it again on account of all the damn loose rock. I had two holds come off in my hand on my first attempt, lucky my belayer was off to the side.
