Featured steep face to a left angling ramp and fun corner climbing. Thin cams protect progress to the final hard moves. Finish at the anchors on Maadim. This route may get its own anchors and a second pitch.


Just right of Maadim.


Bolts and gear. Doubles of the small metolious purple and blue as well as two green camalots then singles up to red camalots. Save one green camalot for the overlap at the end of the dihedral.

Great rock, fun movement, and surprise holds throughout. The crack on the second half of the pitch is terrific. The crux moves are high on the pitch and gear protected. Highly recommended.

One of my favorite pitches at the Reef, this is a great intermediate warm-up for the harder climbs here.

Really fun, varied route. It's much steeper than it looks from the ground, and pretty pumpy. Given that it's mostly bolted a light rack of finger-sized pieces should do just fine.
