The climb starts in a right-curving crack which becomes more of a straight-in crack higher as it dies out. Clip a bolt (crux) and then continue up the frictiony face past two more bolts to the top of the formation. Gear belay and walk/scramble off to the climber's right.

Short and not especially memorable but you could do a whole lot worse while in the vicinity. One star out of five.


This is the left-most route on the Feudal Wall and lies immediately left of the creatively named Route 1326 and Coyote In the Bushes. This portion of the rock seems to be less popular which can be nice on those crowded days.


3 bolts, pro to 3"

Was glad to climb past 3 bolts on this one. The 1st bolt protects the crux well. Not in the Vogel guide otherwise it might see more traffic.
