A fun and sustained climb along an arete. Climb up about 15 ft to a small ledge and the first bolt (it seems a little high but its not that bad). Continue to the top following the bolts along the way.

Bolts to two old rusty chains that could use replacing, you might want to leave the last bolt clipped as a backup if top roping. Currently in the queue for rebolting. Please use your own hardware for top roping.

A new anchor was recently placed around the corner and right from the original anchor. In its current configuration the rope goes over a sharp edge. If you are top roping I would recommend bringing some longer slings to extend the anchor over this edge.

I would say this route is more so an easy 5.9 i onsighted it in the dark with a head lamp about a week ago to clean for some fellas i met up there. Was a great route but just didnt think it was that difficult.
