chloe with lots of rock...


Righteous, get it, it trends right. hahaha.

Fantastic! long climb, sustained 5.9ish climbing with a few tricky crux moves that will make you work for 5.10b. When you finally decide to hike up to this crag bring 18 draws so you and all of your partners can do this route!

Climb the left facing corner, crimps on the face crack in the corner. Continue up moderate rock to a steep puzzling corner. Work it out and it will treat you well (first crux). After the first crux the route jogs right in an exposed crimpy and very fun way. That right angling stuff brings you to some cool interesting face climbing for a good 40 feet. Just before the chains, as if you havent worked hard enough yet, there is one more crux. Pulling the last bulg is tricky but it makes you happy to clip those anchors.


As you head up the gully in to the main area look on the left wall for a left facing corner next to a wide off-width/squeeze chimney. this route climbs the left facing corner.


16! bolts to anchor.
