Cleanse, Fold, and Manipulate

Really fun, this is the most forgiving line on the wall. The warm-up of choice, this thin, well spaced route climbs up a sporadically featured face, using sharp, crisp edges to gain the occasional rest. Thoughtful climbing and dynamic moves get you to the proper, upper crux. For the full value, finish directly up the face to a ledge with a chain anchor. Tricky, passable terrain with great, fluid movement. Think outside the box.
Six bolts to a two-bolt anchor.
This is the second bolted route from the left.

felt the first bolt is a little high considering the consequences of coming off before getting clipped in. no room for the belayer to spot. loose and dirty getting up to the first bolt. took a bad fall pulling out a hold below the first bolt. i would not suggest doing this climb or visiting this area.

Bolt was added to lower section in 2009 per e rock's observation. The rock does have a great deal of lichen on it, and holds have broken off at times. This area will clean up with time, and the brush at the bottom will clear out with additional visitors.
