Description 

Begin in a thin open book corner right of the obvious bolt. Work your way up to a couple of small holds and a stance where you can reach left and clip a bolt. Make a delicate leftwards traverse to a good flake and mantle to another flake where you can reach a less than tips splitter on the left that takes 00 and 0 C3's. Make a fun bouldery move out of a pod to gain a small horizontal flake and a good stance below a small right facing corner. Climb tips to perfect fingers up the corner to a fingers/off-fingers splitter that goes to the chains.


Location 

First route left of Bromance.


Protection 

Small tcu's, tips, fingers and off-fingers, 1 QD. Chain anchor.

I was wondering if you would be into a bolt for this climb because it looked a little consequential to fall at the traverse or bottom area. i think it would attract more traffic that way.

I was torn about adding a bolt to the lower section. The pro is decent high on the far right but makes the traverse heady because of the swing/deck potential. After the traverse a #00 black diamond is pretty solid in the small splitter. A bolt would make the route safer and I'm sure somebody would send the direct start. Next time I come out I'll bring the drill if somebody doesn't get there first. Thanks for the feedback. -Alex

Sounds good Alex.

I finally added a bolt to the lower section of the route, so the traverse is safe. One of the flakes exfoliated this spring making the boulder sequence a little easier. After the traverse a #11 offset DMM nut was really nice to have for the small slot above the splitter.

Anyone know who put up the new route "try me".12 to the right ? It's hard compression climbing!
