Comments: More of a boulder problem to an easy solo to exit than a route. The hard bit is getting up the first 10 ft. A thin layback in a corner, leads to a larger crack. People tell me a hold has broken and that it is harder then 5.10 now, this made me feel much better about how hard it felt to do.

Comments: Protect the crawl out to the first bolt by a cam in the crack on the left. You have to shuffle back and clean it after clipping the bolt otherwise you'll be stopped dead in your tracks from rope drag. A top climb. Always a good hold when you need one.

Comments: Rope drag is hell if done in one pitch. Definitely split it into two. A manky old bolt proects the very delicate slab moves to gain the crack on the second pitch. So it's as much a psycological challenge as a physical one. Rap from the top on a single rope.

Comments: The first bolt is tricky to get to, you can put a small cam behind the flake but it won't keep you off the floor. Beautiful slabby moves lead to a secure and fun layback.
