Description 

Start in the back right corner of the cave. Go up the verical right wall on big holds until you hit the roof. Clip the first roof draw and take a little rest. When your ready shoot left on a long shelf. Either campus across or toe hook up where your hands are. You can also easily nab a few heel toe cams when you need to clip. Finish the traverse and then make one big move up and then you are clipping the anchors.


Protection 

Bolted with chains at the anchor. Due to the steep and traversing nature of the route you have to have someone climb it to clean it.

You can continue past the first anchor to a second anchor about 20 feet higher. This is called Mr. Big (5.12-).
