5 years ago I pulled off the critical clipping hold right under the 3rd or the 4th bolt on the slab section. I think the route was rated 5.10B in the old book.

Top of the 3rd pitch at the good ledge. You can see the last bolt before the anchor on the left. It's a traverse pitch that is technical but well protected.

From my perspective belaying the 2nd at the anchors the most obvious line is climber's right of the bolted line around the dark streak.

3. If you are 5ft 8 or taller you can skip the side cling crimp in the crack and just... more >>
