Awesome route! The first pitch is a cruiser (5.7+, very well bolted). The second pitch is where the real fun starts (a bit run out, with tons of exposure. Also, you can't see partner for 70% of climb).


It shares an anchor with "Fun Button" and starts just left of "Fun Button."


Bring a few quickdraws. There is a 2 bolt anchors at the top of each pitch.

Did this route a few years ago, the 2nd pitch was pimp. I used a #1 for the run out section.

This route is not runout. The crux of the second pitch is above the 3rd bolt, and you have to make a few moves above the bolt, but a fall here would be safe.

Placing a #1 would require stopping in the middle of hard moves when you are only a couple of moves from really good hand and foot holds.

Our 60m rope almost made it to the ground (4' short) from the bolts at the end of the second pitch, so it should be possible to reach the ground with a 70m, but double check before committing.

Seemed quite easy to stop and place that pro. Also I remember doing 1 rap with a 70m and being just fine.

The route isn't even close to runout. It's probably (like everything else here) overbolted, if anything. On the other hand, safety first. Can be climbed as a single pitch, use a long (3ft) runner at the first anchors, and long slings when possible. I rapped with a single 60m.
