This was my favorite climb in the area. The crux was getting out of the gully and onto the face. After you pull this move about 1/3rd of the way up its a 5.7 all the way to the top.


Sport Route. Bolts well placed.

By the 5th bolt it is easy.

Agreed. Once you get out on to the face, it's almost a walk up.

Good clipping stances, I really like this one, but aside from muscling up to the (3rd or 4th can't remember) bolt it seems really easy. I would say this one is at least as easy as face plant imho, but I'm not much good at guessing grades.

Route keeps you on your feet and awkward. More technical than strenuous. Eases up near the top. Lots of bolts on this route make it a good lead for new 5.10'ers.

Onsighted on trad gear. Good placements, little runout on the top, but it's fine cause it's easy climbing. Bring a standard rack and some micro nuts to protect the bottom.
