This is an old route of mine that needed a little TLC. This route has a cool variety of moves and holds. Originally there were just 2 self-drive bolts and a tree limb for pro. Now there are 4 new stainless bolts. Climb bouldery moves past the diHARDral to a nice ledge. Clip another bolt and crank straight up to easier ground and up to another bolt. Lower/rap from the MSP cable anchor. I think most everyone will enjoy this route if 10+/11- is in your ability.


20 ft right of Mennonite Surf Party below a short left facing corner.


4 clippy things plus some extra for the anchor. Some may want to backup to cables with cams (2.5 inches and bigger)

I think I may have climbed this before the new bolts...and I slung that tree branch for pro...I also remember the di-hard-ral. Looking forward to getting back on it. Thanks!

Great powerful and delicate start. Very chill after second bolt.

Fun line! Pretty tame for an 11, but a must do! The movement up to and passing the second bolt is awesome!
