Rob Kepley doing some Atmospheric Testing (5.10d) ...


Route No. 3 on the beta photo, it follows the sharp arete on the crag's right side (facing the rock). Thin edges lead to a cruxy bulge between the third and fourth bolt. Don't get suckered to the right. There are inventive underclings and liebacks higher up. Lots of exposure and just enough bolts to add a modest pucker factor.


9 bolts and one 'peg' with Fixe Ring Anchors at top. You may want to bring along a #0.75 Camalot for the finish.

Clean rock with an excellent crux section, but it is slightly contrived.
