RP on 2nd ascent.


Start with some reachy but good holds.

Move up veering left or right at your discretion on good albeit sometime hard to locate holds through several clips to a stance before the harder part of the climb begins.

Follow well-protected climbing past 3 clips and then move up the interesting short face past 1 clip to double ring anchors.


This is the second route encountered if coming from the Potato routes and is at the top of the rocky incline.


11 clips to anchors.
