Some thoughtful moves. Top crux is not directly under the top anchor, so a top-rope belay is not so comforting for a following climber.

Short at about 30 feet. The crux is at the end, requires route finding as the line goes left and requires some muscle. Not a great route.

This is a great warm up and I had a ton of fun solo leading this route, here are some long arm pics of me enjoying this climb.

Anchors away.. The climb was a ton of fun.. However the anchors bolts are carbon steel and the rings are stainless steel which will cause corrosion problems.. Just as a FYI and yes I dropped a few bucks in the bolt fund

Short, sweet climb. There's a huge loose death block that you want to grab right before you pull the last ledge.

I thought that this climb's anchors were poorly bolted; the end should have been one ledge higher, with current strengthy finish protected with a lower bolt.
