Steep start that traverses left then up to a steep headwall. The trick is getting to the quartz crystals that lead to lower angle rock.


From the campsite just before you get to the Murray wall proper, drop down and left about 100 feet. Overhanging crystal and knob covered face that is severely undercut just left of an obvious flake.

This line is still cleaning up; expect a shower of pebbles to fall on the belayer. The clipping hold for the 5th bolt, while it held, seemed weak and might need to be reinforced. Overall a fun route.
