Start by climbing down and around a low hanging bulge then up on pretty good holds to a tough move off of an undercling to a good hold high on the short vertical section of rock above. Move up another steep bit to more jugs and a traverse left into the underclings at the 4th bolt on Dope.

Continue out Dope through the tough section on pockets and the throw to the jugs and lower off for "Short on Faith" 5.13-, or continue out the V6 boulder problem to the top for the full route.


From the right this is the second route that starts out of the back of the cave and the 6th route from the arete. I don't recall what color the tape is on the draws.


Bolts with fixed chain draws.

while tightening the 4th and 5th nuts on Dope that like to loosen themselves, we discovered that the entire bolts are loose and can be moved up and down.
