The Young And The Rackless 10a
FA: Vaino Kodas, Mark Rolofson, 2003
This route is on East Blob Rock. About 200 feet down the gully from The Ticket, look for a dead tree with no top on it. The route starts just downhill from here. (This tree is currently standing but may not last). P1: Climb a steep face and then move left to a slab ending at a belay just right of a large grassy ledge (9), 7 bolts, 80'. P2: Climb straight up past 5 bolts (9), 50'. (P1 and P2 can be combined) P3: There are two variations to pitch 3. Both are 5.10. Trend right at the top to a tricky move into a right facing corner leading to the belay. 9 bolts, 90'. P4: Follow a slab moving up and right (9). Walk off and descend The Ticket gully or rappel.

Moby DikeMoby Dike

Moby Dike 9
FA: Vaino Kodas, Moe Hershoff, 2004
This climb is just left of Leaping Lizards, on the upper west side of the south face of Bitty Buttress. Locate a large slightly right-slanting quartz band, visible during the hike up toward Blob Rock. Moby Dike begins from a two-bolt belay on a ramp at the bottom of this quartz band. The best approach is via a third-class ramp/ledge on the left. One may also approach by various moderate gear-protected pitches below this ramp, but watch out for loose rock. Traverse right to the band and then follow it up to a roof. Move left around the roof but beware of a possible loose block after turning the corner. An exposed and exciting pitch. 7 bolts.
