Bro RONNNN!! leading and clipping the third bolt o...


Decent route but fairly stout (thin) for a 5.8 like the guidebook suggests. The route is very short so I would only recommend if already in the area working some of the 5.10 routes on the same wall.


This is the furthest route on the right side of the Casino cliffs and is up a small dirt ramp to get to the base of the route. Many 5.10 routes are just left of this short route.


3 Bolts will get you to the fixed anchors and your rappel

Fun route with a difficult crux for a 5.8+. Closer to a 5.9 to me.
