This ain't no rinky-dink "sport" climb!

Its got really good moves and fairly sustained climbing on good rock. It may be fully bolted with chains and biners on every bolt but...

Don't blow the 3rd clip or it could be bad. Kind of hairy past the 3rd bolt (11+) too. Great movement with some rests sets you up for a tricky crux glide out right 3/4 of the way up. Get it!


bolts w/ chains and biners, first bolt has faded red sling

I don't know the condition of this route when Alex added it, but it's now fully sport bolted (probably 8 bolts) and feels a little sporty, but safe.
