Description 

This short bouldery route starts on the right side of the wall. Fight through a crux sequence of small crimps and a fun sloper just after the first bolt, up to a crimp below the second bolt. Pull up and gain a jug to clip and chalk up. Another short boulder problem awaits getting to the 3rd bolt and a rest jug under the roof. (Be careful of a sizeable chunk underneath the roof with an "x" on it... I tried to pull it out, but it didn't budge, but still be aware...) Finally, fun and easy climbing takes you over the roof with a long reach, and then up left to the anchors.


Location 

This route is located on the Merlin formation, it's just to the right of Merlin. Follow the New River trail.


Protection 

4 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor equipped with rap rings.

Sweet route Jason. This route definitely needs to be done while its cool to get some friction. Got on the other day in the heat and sun and it was SO greasy.
