Climb directly up to the very odvious crack near the top.


You can either top rope this, using the bolts to the left of the crack, trad lead this, or solo it - which isn't too scary.

First of all, FOUND GEAR! An anchor setup was left attached to the two bolts at the top of this route. It was from today, and my partner and I saw you and your partner climbing there. You were teaching your partner trad techniques; my partner and I were planning to set up a vertical dance rig after top roping next to you. Describe the gear to me and I'll get it back to you!

Second, as Damon noted more than a year ago, one of the bolts at the top of this route is a spinner. It still is a spinner nearly a year and a half after his comment, so definitely back up your anchor if using it.

Takes lots of good gear, 2"-4" pieces will sew it up well.

one of the bolt achors at the top of this climb is rattling around and loose, the bolt seems solid but probably not a bad idea to back up the bolt with a cam (I used at #3 camalot) just for redundency with the top rope set up.
