A fun bouldery climb on solid rock up a face to an arete and finally a nice ledge with anchors... Stays cool on hot days due to its sheltered location... Multiple tricky spots may puzzle you on your journey...

Climb a technical face to the 3rd bolt... make interesting moves to a jug and your last bolt... There are a couple ways to solve the last problem one a little to the right and one slightly left of the bolt... Either way you do it is about the same grade but different styles of climbing...


When you get to Hinterlands step over the log and look up... This route is just right of the big gully/chimney...


4 bolts to anchors...

Short but very crimpy. Even though there are a few eases in difficulty, I found it pretty sustained until you are just below the finish. Lee described the finish well - I took the right exit and didn't really know what I was holding on to but it just sort of worked until I could move up to a good crimp and the mantle.
