Interesting climbing for the first half of the route keeps you thinking up to the crux sequence.

The crux starts with a stretch out right and then a sequence of moves back left over an overhang. The climbing is steep but the holds although small are positive.


Located just right of center of the wall, 8 feet left of Drive Through Chapel


5 bolts, open shuts anchor

Doing the crux(4th-5th bolt) by reaching up and right is 10c. To get the full(original vision of the FA)11a effect, reach out left to the good sidepull flake and work up on small feet and crimps...It's harder but really cool moves...

Best line at the crag (imo). Steep, but with good holds and a few good rests.
