Mostly bolt protected face climbing on excellent rock. The route angles to the right so the rope drag gets a bit heavy near the first anchor.


Climbs the left edge of the pinnacle left of the main Mule Hollow Wall. Belay just to the left of a large block near the left edge of the wall. The first bolt should be visible about 10 feet off the ground. Make two 30 meter rappels to the ground.


Bolts to chain anchors.
You can either run it out near the top or bring a small selection of cams or nuts.

I thought this route was no harder than 5.7, but the wide spacing between the bolts and fixed pitons kept it engaging.

We had some cams and nuts to supplement the fixed pro, and were glad for the extra protection options.

Very fun route, with excellent rock quality.
