Description 

Begin in a small slightly chossy dihedral about 100 feet right of La Cholla Jackson. Climb the dihedral for two clips before moving left onto the arete, then follow a bulging face before ending at coldshuts below a small roof.

This route delivers its crux in a swift punch at the fourth bolt. Tall and short people can deal this one in different ways. Interesting puzzle at the crux and enjoyable pocket pulling before and after. One and a half stars in my book.


Protection 

Five bolts to two bolt coldshuts.

This route gets 3 stars out of 4 in the Thompson guide. I think it deserves them - although it's not as classic as the four star routes nearby - it does deliver worthy climbing on bomber rock. Well worth doing,

This route has great moves, but it's short and the crux is even shorter. Still worthwhile in my opinion.

There's not much to it, but figuring out the moves on this route was a blast. Tricky and highly worthwhile!
