Good climb, nice bolt spacing for all climbers. Early morning sun. Slightly harder than Superfly only in that there are less options between the Tons of holds available to the climber, causing you to perhaps make a move. Well spaced bolts. Crux may be right before or after the last bolt.


First route left of Superfly.


Bolts (9?) to chains

Best < 5.9+ climb on the wall. I actually found it to be one of the easier ones. The line is far more obvious than most of the others and the holds are obvious and awesome. If you are a new leader I think you will find this one easier than the 5.8's to the right. We certainly did.
