Description 

Climb up steep rock on large, mostly positive holds. From the ground follow the obvious jugs but don't go right to the third bolt too soon or you'll wonder where the 5.7 part went.

A short, gym-like route that is quite a bit of fun because of the steepness and big holds. It's pumpy, and while you're in it you'll wonder why 5.7 seems so tough.


Location 

Starts up the short, steep bit on the left that juts out a bit. The left of the three bolted routes.


Protection 

4 bolts, ring anchors.

A bunch of us seem to agree that this route is harder than the longer middle climb. Climb on the left side of the bolts to keep it the easiest. The third bolt seems a bit out of place, but maybe the rock right on the moves is hollow. Fun, quick mostly juggy moves.

I agree. I thought it was harder than 5.7, but 5.7 is what Collin said it was and who am I to argue?

The way I climbed the thing (climbing on the right more) was 5.9. Crisco stayed more to the left and said that it felt more like 5.8. Either way, this is a pretty pumpy little climb. It definitely felt harder than the 5.8 to the right.

I hadn't been able to research this climb until after I climbed it. And it took a bit of luck to find it on here. Definitely not a 5.7. You want to see 5.7, go around the corner to the wild and play on those walls. It was harder than the 5.8 in the wild as well. I loved this climb though. And my wife lead it. Very hot.

I would give it another star if it weren't so short. The rock is solid with good holds all the way up. I did think it was a little tough for the grade but it was over quick.
