Warning Stainless-steel bolts are suspect near the coast. A rebolting effort is underway. MORE INFO >>>

Description 

A fiendish sand bag for the grade. Not that anything really justifies it being 5.11d it is 5.11c but very awkward, the crux comes from the first 20 foot or so of dihedral stemming. Believe in the holds, they're there somewhere.

Location 

Third line from the left when facing the crag

Protection 

Resin Bolts

No way this route is 5.11c. The book lists this climb as 6b (5.10c/d), but could possibly be a 6b+ (5.11a) due to the bouldery first few bolts. I really, really enjoyed this one. You should too!
