Technical off the start. Leading to a small roof trending right with an awesome hold (that won't break off). To a slabby section. Then to another head wall. Last bolt makes this route spicy but is on rather chill terrain. If your a 5.10 climber the ending would seem scary. Great addition to the North Butt!


The route is located at the very left side of North Buttress.


10~ bolts.

I give this a "PG13/R" rating just for the very top. Though the difficulty backs off after you pull the last roof, if you blow it in the last couple moves to the anchor, the fall will be long and it looks like a hard hit into the wall! Someone left a nice fat chalk mark right where another bolt should be added.
Crux is at the bottom.

The final bolt has been added. This route is no longer PG-13.

A little hard to figure out but a hoot when you do.
