This is super fun!


Access: there is a climber's trail just below Drill for the Thrill. Please follow this to the base of the crag, then traverse left. This means a couple of extra steps but will save the talus slope from erosion.

See the topo for location.


7 bolts.

A long fun climb with a short bit of 5.7 on the obvious head wall at 3/4 height. Unfortunately, the ridiculously wide spacing between bolts make this a 5.7 bolted for a 5.9 leader. If any of the hard routes were bolted like this there would be howls of protest.

Agree with the above post, reachy bolts for a shorter leader. My partner thought this felt more like a 5.8 on lead as she is 5'2" and found a few of the bolts harder to clip.
