The Hump - Rosedale

Dave and I tried to climb Rosedale on Saturday but we figure we were off route. Does anyone have a photo or two of it? Or a clear description. Does it follow the red lichen up the slabby face? I think we trended to the left to far. Cheers Scott.

If the start feels really hard and slightly overhung, you were probably on the right route. You head up the broken grove for about 20 feet and go left onto some grassy ledges. You could belay here but lower down feels safer. Climb some broken ground up to the start of the headwall. The start looks like a short flake with a couple of decent incut holds on the left. It looks like incuts go straight up, but actually reaching over right to the crack is the key (I think). It should be fairly licheny where you start (more black than red). It doesn't look like much of a crack when you start the route.

Further to the left you get to the slightly overhanging blank face. About 10ft or 15ft up there is a fairly blank section. I doubt you would have been on this.

None of the pictures I have are great, so I can't help you there. What did you end up doing instead?

Hey guys,

This is Dave in the pic, he onsighted the line, good lead, kind of an exposed exit. Thanks for the info. One question though, there apeared to be no pro through the top section? I'm guessing there are some small nut placements or micro tcu placements?

On a side note, we were down in Red Rocks and Jtree, red rocks is amazing, j tree not as impressed as I had been lead to beleive, the quality of rock in squamish kicks over jtree. Plus, that desert wind was something to be reckoned with....we thought we had wind. Oh and the rats digging under the tent all night was nice and almost getting bit by a three foot sidewinder rattler.
Cheers Scott
