Good, vertical route on nice gray stone. Starts with steeper climbing on juggy pockets and then ascends the less featured upper wall. The route tends to meander right and left through the center section. This route is still a little dirty, but should clean up nicely with more traffic. The plaque at the base calls this route 5.11a, the guidebook calls it 5.10d. It's a fine line, so you be the judge.


This is the second bolted route to the right of "No Bones About It". Head to the right when you reach the wall.
