The bouldery, devious crux comes at the beginning, protected by the two bolts. Keep your weight on your feet as you struggle to use the crack feature at the crux, reaching high to a good finger lock and then stretching to the rail while using a good pinch. From the large rail, you can clip the third bolt to protect the move and then it's relatively easy climbing to the anchors with two more bolts. This climb is hard to rate as it is a hard climb to onsight but with beta, it is much easier.


This is the 4th route on the right when you enter the Notch or the leftmost route of the collection of four routes on the south side of the Notch.


Five bolts plus anchor.

I did not lead it, but the bolts are there, no fixed nut, and I would call this R. The gear you get in the uper portion is in less than marginal rock, at least in my opinion.

I added three bolts to this yesterday, so it is now a fully bolted sport climb with five bolts total. The route is clean and climbs well.
