  • Description 

    The first 15 feet or so is the business on this route. Sprint up the 5.9 section and the climbing backs off to easy 5.6 after that. A fun route and good warm up.


    This route is on the left hand side of the East face. To the left of the fire pit.


    Trad, no anchors.

    EDIT: a BD #5 AND a #6 can easily be used on the bottom portion, #5 protects the crux right off the ground
