This thin face route has many small flakes for holds. The climbing is so-so. It starts on the ground, to the right of the Tiny Pillars area.


3 bolts to a bolted belay/rappel anchor

Generic slab climbing with exfoliating edges that will make this route harder with time and more traffic. Zero stars but not a bomb.

Agree with Chris completely, though I'm leaning toward bomb.

Climbed this route on 5.24.2009 and I thought that it definitely felt harder than 5.10a. I wouldn't give it any stars, but if you're on a mission to tick obscurities then this a fine route. As some of the edges have undoubtedly exfoliated, the climbing feels a bit tricky. Crux is probably getting past the first bolt to the small rail.
