Climb the shallow groove/crack up the black water streak to the first bolt. Pull the crux moves through the bulge to a second bolt. Enjoy the perfect knobby face climbing to the top!


This is on the Quarry Wall's right side, near the For Real Canyon entrance.


Bolts and pro to 3". 2 coldshut anchors.

There are no anchor bolts directly above this route. I used the anchors on the route to the left.

The anchors are there, keep climbing up & slightly rightward on the chickenheads and you will find them. A 60m rope gets you down just barely.

I think this route is 5.10, even if you stand on the first bolt, which I and my partner did.
