This is located to the right of Leap Frog, on the other side of a gap/chimney. Start on the arete left of the route to reach and clip the first bolt, then follow the protection and bolts to the chains shared with Leap Frog.


Bolts and gear up to 1". Chain anchors shared with Leap Frog.

This route can be done without any trad gear. It is then a little runout in a couple of spots. The bolts are where they are needed most. But as always use your own judgement.

The beginning is difficult for 5.8, similar to the 8's at lefthand wall, to some shelves and some slabby stuff. The view at the top of this climb is amazing and makes it all worthwhile!

60M rope necessary!

Thought this was a decent climb. Good slabby start then easier climbing to top.

It definately eases up at the 3rd bolt but gets some rope drag towards the end. I liked it.

Yes, no trad gear necessary and I felt very safe because of the protection placement.
