This climb is a basic climb that is rather enjoyable. Located on the far right of the crag this climb is well protected with 3 bolts and anchors. A little loose rock as it's rarely climbed.

Start is easy with huge rails and jugs through the first three clips to the crux. Make it over the slight overhang to the anchors.


Recommend 5 quickdraws for fixed anchors and bolts.

This is a great climb for the area, hence the 3 stars. Since I'm out of shape it worked me and I had to hang but the moves are really fun. The upper mid section is real mental - not at all obvious. Highly recommend.
