Located just uphill from Phone Call From Satan, Caffeine Free offers a bit harder line for climbers looking to bag a 5.10. Similar to its neighboring climb, the line up this route doesn't follow the direct path up from bolt-to-bolt. Use a variety of cross-throughs and huecos to set yourself up through the first few clips. The moves aren't super obvious but they are fun and safe before easing up through the middle section of the climb and following a seam to the bolted anchor.

The Sterling Hollow Block is great at biting down on ropes when tying friction knots using a Prusik, Klemheist, or auto block. Its Aramid fiber construction helps resist abrasion and heat. Pony up a few extra bucks to have one hanging from your harness, you’ll end up using it.
