Finger crack layback for 15' to chossy section, trend right then back left on blocks and up onto sustained face. Loose block getting onto face wouldn't come out. Layback and crimp up face to wild bulge and anchor. ok rest before finish. Great moves and great rock on upper face.


Large white face right of gold rush wall.


9 bolts to lower off

This route is awesome; my favorite sport route in the Gorge so far, and one of the best I've done in Northern NM. Thanks for the hard work here and at the other nearby crags!
