Start on a slightly wandering vertical face with sculpted looking holds to a ledge at the base of a gently overhanging wall. Crank up on good juggy sidepulls and edges. Tricky moves at the second to last bolt lead to an easy vertical section below the anchors. Long and fun with only one hard section.


11 bolts to mussy hooks

Great route that gains it's "b" status by being sustained alone. I don't believe there is a single 11b move on it but in all honestly if you're breaking into the 11 lead, you'd likely get spanked. Little rest if any on this vertical route.

Fantastic route with lots of 10ish moves...pumpy on upper half. No hard moves. There are rest on this route...there is actually a sit down, no hands rest half way up.
