Another quality looong pitch. Fix a line and rap from Bolts on the rim with a plaque 165ft to a small stance with 2 bolts. The crux is getting to and past the first bolt so its not a bad idea to clip your lead line to the bolt on your way down. The route is very eldo like that it's face, protected by the occasional gear.


About 600ft up canyon from wine and roses
Has a plaque


2 bolts and gear from .3 -#3
