Unknown climber beginning May-B-Nueve.


This is a good route up a slab split by a crack. Go up the slab to the left of the crack to the first bolt. Step right at the bolt or slightly above and straight up to anchors up top.


This route is located in the Entrance area, to the right of Captain America.


5 (4?) bolts, bolted anchor.

Slabby and thin from bottom to top, very challenging for the grade, and a great mental warm-up.

A good lead climb for someone looking for technical yet beginner lead climbing. Balance is key.

I agree with Amato, challenging for the grade. Great friction at the top.

I agree with the comments about challenging for the grade. Definitely the hardest of the 8s we did.

Probably closer to 5.9 slab but one can always bail to the right into a crack if the harder section at the top gets too scary. More like a 5.7 finish this way.

Faith in your rubber is required. I would not put a new leader on it, nor a leader w/o slab experience. Although I guess this depends what you think of falling on slab.
