Description 

This is a long, varied and popular route that weaves it's way up the featured face past a distinct crux over a bulge past the 5th bolt and finishes with moves over a small roof to a short section of slab below the anchors.

At the crux it's possible to go left into a crack system and then cut back right - done this way it's probably 5.8 or so.


Location 

The next bolted route right of Bum Steer on the right side of the face.


Protection 

9 bolts, chain anchors

Pretty good route on quasi wandering and featured terrain. Again, the bolt line is not where all the holds live, but fun none the less. Do it!

The climbing is fun and not sustained.

I think it feels like a solid 10b. The crux is next to last bolt from top; do it fresh--it's long and winds back and forth. I'm sure its much easier once its dialed in a couple of times.

Very wandering climb. Guide book shows to straight up and angle right than angle backleft. I went up right, traverse left, up, traverse right again then up. Different variations to this climb, but still fun.

Overall a fun route, but it does seem a bit contrived. The crux bolt is placed right of the natural line to force you through the crux moves.

Top notch long moderate, which has a couple of options at the crux, if one stays on the bolt line it certainly 5.10a at least.
