This is the 1st route you see on the main wall of the upper section. Fun & pumpy climbing on rounded, bulbous holds that generally face the wrong way & never quite feel juggy enough. Proper technique & body postioning will pay off large on this route.


5 bolts, chains at the top.

Love this area and this route. Fun overhanging climb on some slopey jugs.
