Description 

On the west face of the west block. Start with a cam and head up the bolts on thin edges. It is very steep and a pump for sure.

Fun route. A little soft for 5.11 i thought. I have no idea why anyone would call this route PG-13. There is a bolt ever six feet. Decent clip stances too.

It felt a little PG13 because the cam I took up was too small for the seam, so I had to run it up the first bolt without pro, but I agree that, protected properly, it's plenty safe.

Hmm...a 40 ft route, a cam and 4 bolts = protection every 8 ft, not 6 ft. At six feet we're talking about protection a body length apart, but eight feet is more than a body length and might make some folks nervous, plus add in the knucklehead factor...wrong size cam and you have a PG rating. Go figure??

No PG rating if you plug red camalot in before the first bolt. Big holds and great stances getting to that cam and past it, remove the PG-13 rating in my opinion. After that it's really fun, crimpy, delicate moves past 4 bolts to a single bolt "anchor". There are some sparsely placed bolts up there, and rigging a TR is possible, but make sure your anchor hangs over the lip, the rock is really sharp on the edge. Hopefully a proper abhor with chains will appear someday because this line is super fun and the view is spectacular. Get that cover shot!!
