Description 

Fun face climb with good sun late in the day. If ya want to, some smaller aliens could be used to supliment the pro on the route but not necessary. The anchor at the top is just two hangers requiring a walk-off for at least one in the party.


Protection 

Four bolts to a two bolt anchor.

This route is located on the far left side of the Vagmarken Hillside not too far above the desert floor and down and left from Vagmarken Buttress (5.7)**. Randy calls these the Intimidator Rocks in his guidebook.

Decent moves on this climb but nothing especially noteworthy about it...oh, the rock quality is nice. One star out of five.

I gave directions to this route on the area page for the Intimidator Rocks.

A fun route on nice rock.Being 5'4" made the top part rough as I had to do a blind throw to the rail and was lucky enough to get the good hold, but was right next to a bolt.

One bolt anchor on top but you should put a piece in the topout for your second.

Fun route on good rock with some burly moves near a bolt at the top.

This is also a full-blown sport route, with QDs only and a bolted anchor. Calling this route a trad route is incorrect.
