Extremely hard top to the anchors.


Nice slab climb just to the left of an obvious arete. Begin from a small ledge 10 feet above the trail. Use the arete where possible.


Follow the alternate approach trail uphill to a bolted line right as the trail meets the cliff.


5 bolts to a bolted anchor.

without a stick clip to first moves are very committing, as you are starting on a ledge five or ten feet up, and climbing another five feet to the first bolt.

From the description given above, my group and I thought we were on this climb. We still aren't 100% sure though. If we were on the correct route, there is absolutely no way this climb is a 5.9 as the RRG guidebook calls it, or a 5.10a as shown above. The bottom 2.5 bolts were definitely a slab climb, but EXTREMELY technical and in at least the 10c-10d range. Above that, the climb got slightly overhanging and was basically a super sustained crimp fest in the quarter to half pad range, with holds being spaced a pretty good distance part. This didn't improve much until the last bolt. All in all I would put this climb in the11b-c range at least. I would love to know if I'm going off the deep end here and talking about an unlisted new route because I'm not sure.

This is the first route you come to from the approach trail. Thin first few moves if you don't stick clip, but it doesn't sound like the route described in previous comments. Maybe a reachy move or two, but definitely 5.9 or 5.9+
