Description 

Starts with face climbing over 3 bolts, continue up a right-facing corner that starts with off-fingers and goes through the sizes up to steep cupped hands.


Location 

Approach by driving towards the Optimater Wall, but park at a small pull-out on the left. Follow an obvious flute to the cliff bottom and walk right until you see the plaque.


Protection 

Quick draws, .75 Camalots through 3 Camalots.
2 ring hanger anchors

This route is pretty sweet but not quite a classic for two reasons. One, its a little loose and dirty but that would get better with more traffic. The second and bigger reason is that a key foot hold for starting the route and getting to the 2nd bolt is fractured and going to break off someday soon. I think this would make the route slightly harder, maybe 11+.

I loved this route. Great climbing and well protected. Was nice to have well placed bolts before the crack. I agree with Steven though, the few loose sections drop the quality down a notch and the loose foothold, although still there, has a short life span. I wish I had tried it on tr without using the foothold to see how hard it's gonna be. Don't hesitate to get on this route.

Totally worth the walk! This will still be 5.11 when that foot breaks. Thanks to whoever spotted the line and took the initiative to bolt the start.
