This is an interesting route that is joined by Dude's Way (which was added later) to the right at its 3rd bolt. Start up with a crux crack move or two which feel kind of physical. Move up and right on face moves. There are nice bulges to pass midway and near the top. The rating posted here is that of 2 climbers who just climbed it.

Supplemental cams might be nice but are not required.

For more details, check out Mark's new guide...fading memory is not as good.

I'm told other climbers think this is 5.10.


This starts up a right-facing dihedral with bolts to the right. It is the left start of the 4th bolted line from the right.


8 bolts, 2 bolt anchor.

Can be climbed entirely on gear, and much more fun that way.

Avoid the bolts and climb the crack to the left...Kirill's Way.
