Start on the face below the first bolt. Climb up passing the first bolt to gain the ledge and then on to the arete for the second bolt. Continue up the arete and then move up left to the large pocketed arete and follow this to the anchors.


Between Rock Candy and Scorpio.


8 bolts, anchors

No need for gear in the crack

I've climbed this route a number of times, but never found myself in the wide crack to the left. There are plenty of face holds to get to the 1st bolt. Maybe stem a bit on the left wall. Besides, who brings a #5 out to a sport area?

exciting start to the first bolt if you dont move into the wide crack. more excitement getting to the 2nd and 3rd bolt. just hold on and dont use the ledge to your left. hard 5.9. also not a trad route..
