Fun route, although a bit of a one-move wonder (and many beginners' first 5.10 TR). The crux of the route is leaving the obvious hole. High step with your left foot and simply stand up. Use a decent crimp for the right hand.

From atop the hole, 5.9+ face climbing leads up and left, to the top.

According to the Tucker/Steele guidebook, Reese Martin put this route up as a roped-solo and nearly met his end while doing so--Martin peeled off the route in a head-first fall and was stopped by his self belay just inches above the ground.


Two lead bolts. Fixed anchors with chains on top.

This is a very serious lead, despite the relative ease of the route for its grade.
