Fun route with a bouldery crux from the third to the fourth bolt. Big moves, good holds. Above the 4th bolt it gets weird. The holds are hidden and slope in weird angles. Can feel a little desperate going to the chains.


Farthest route to the right.


7 bolts + the chains. Shares chains with Smell the Glove.

Thought this was the best route on the wall with a fun sequence.

This route has some huge holds in between a very obvious crux. Its well protected so go for it. The upper part has a smaller crux with crimps.

Fantastic route. I really enjoyed it. Easily the best route on the wall.

This is a nice hidden gem. I had heard of this wall but never had come up. This route is very thought provoking and thankfully there is a good rest before and after the crux. Look carefully for the "not so obvious" crimps at the top when going for your redpoint.

This was my first 11c and wasn't as difficult as I was expecting. It was just solid climbing with fun moves over a bulge to the fourth bolt and a thin section going up to the last bolt. The approach is also pretty mild and there is rarely anyone on the wall. I highly recommend it.

I really struggled getting through the crux. I'm average height, but my partner's slightly longer reach made this easier for him. Thought provoking. I'll come back to this one.
