Bouldery start leads to easy slab then goes over crux roof with fixed draws. Touch the anchors without clipping them,then jump off onto fixed draws to save rope drag.


Next route to the right of Short Stop.


7 bolts.

I finally got on this thing. Hasn't been climbed in many years. Pulled 4 huge bushes off of this thing. And the two fixed draws need some love. The hardware looks good enough, but the dog bones are DUN! Weather faded and looking manky. Thought provoking route. It all comes down to the last roof. Probably a hard v6 boulder problem at the top. Good temps will make this one feel more like a 12c.
