Description 

Head up the well bolted line past a fun slab section to a finger crack roof (10b). Continue up the face to the anchor/mussy hooks.

An excellent route that features varied and sustained climbing.

Location 

From the toe of the slab scramble up and right to a prominent flake/block with a bush on its left. Watch rope ends on rap/lower!

Protection 

14 bolts, mussy hook anchor. Watch rope ends on rap/lower!

Glad people are enjoying this one. Long draws can be useful on bolts 6 and 9 to reduce rope drag. However, I've led it with only short draws on all the bolts and it wasn't too bad. One note: the length of the route should say 35 meters, not 35 feet!

yep, 35m not 35' - maybe someone can change the default setting on that, i didn't see an option, so it'll be 115'...
