This is an interesting route with a one or two move crux. The first bolt is 15 feet off the deck, but after that the bolts are very well-placed. Stem up the dihedral using the thin crack and pockets on the West-facing wall to get you to a good stance below the final overhang. The key to this section is getting your feet high and stemming. Once you make the crux move, you can reach the anchor.


Three bolts to 2 cold shuts.

Good route with fun stemming and a stopper crux move, just before the anchors. You'll know it when you get there!

If you're going to climb this and want some good karma, bring a wrench to tighten up the left anchor bolt, it's pretty loose.
