This climb is on the first nice west face, up the gully. To attain the beginning, scramble up a dihedral and gain the ledge just up gully from the start. Scramble down to the base of the climbs. This climbs the left bolted line. Nice balancey moves to start off, turning reachy and then blind holds over the roof. After clipping the 3rd bolt, make a beeline for the anchors. This makes for a fun traversing roof pull.


2 bolts for anchors, and 3 draws. I also placed a medium-small nut for the initial moves. Rappell off
