The 2 shuts at the top of this route are fairly worn from people lowering and / or top roping off them.
Route info: 10-12 bolts. Fairly solid rock. The line starts at the extreme left of the java wall below the ramp. Two bolts lead up and onto the ramp. Follow the bolts up to the arete and crux bulge. The crux bolt's hanger is a bit loose (seemed fine though). Pull through this bulge clip a bolt then follow the bolts diagonally left. The route straight up is cappuccino (5.11c). The final part has good holds and feet, but is slightly overhanging causing it to be the enduro crux.

|The two anchor shuts are worn, but a new 3rd shut was added in April of 2009. There are currently 3 shuts at the anchor. The route consists of 12 bolts and a 3 shut anchor.|
