Another route that can be listed as a good warm up for the harder routes at the right.... As with most of the routes on the left side of the crag, it's not super classic, but it's worth doing (though not as a means to an end)....

Climb up on to the ledge as for the start of Cosmic Monsters (5.12a).... Climb straight up the face above encountering a hard move at the top this crux is easier for tall climbers (I know this, cause I am one)....


Just left of Cosmic Monsters (5.12a) on the left side of the crag...Starting by mounting an awkward ledge....


4 bolts to anchors.

FYI, this route still only has one anchor, and it's a spinner (as is the bolt below it).

edit: apparently this has been fixed. a big thank you to the person responsible for putting in the time and effort to make this route safe!

Thank you Peter.
We walked by Monsters on the way out last Sat and I spied the new anchors from the ground. They look great. Thanks for putting in the time and effort.
