As the name implies, this route marks the end of the climbing at East Animas. Start with a steep move off the ground then lieback/jam up the nice left-facing corner. Finish at bolts.


This is at the far left end of the climbing at East Animas.


Standard East A rack.

This is a great route with a really powerful, dynamic move off the deck. After you gain the crack, it's easy lie-backing to gain a ledge. After the ledge, cruise easy 3 in. cracks to the top. Top roping this route would be much easier if there were drilled bolt anchors at the top. The tree is in an awkward spot for an anchor and is starting to wear around the trunk. It's worth is to drill some bolts at the top.

Now it ends at a two-bolt anchor.

Be very careful of a large, loose block about 3/4s of the way up above the ledge, on the right, with a small bush growing out of it. I tried wiggling it out, but it wasn't quite there, though it won't be long.
