Start under the big roof. The first couple bolts are on vertical rock - you'll find the crux here. The route underclings, liebacks, and stems to the anchors. The rock quality deteriorates as the route goes vertical, but the climbing is easy and well protected. Wear a helmet and have fun!

See the topo for location.


10 or so bolts.

Great route! With a little more cleaning, this thing will be an all time classic.

I don't know if a hold broke or something, but when our party of 3 turned the first bolt into a boulder problem and we were all quite ego-bruised, we decided to leave. By far, the most significantly difficult 5.11c I've ever encountered.
