Pulling to the 3rd bolt.

Pull through the steep corner into the the area below a small roof passing two bolts. Place a small cam or nut here to avoid a groundfall and head out right. Pull past another bolt to a two bolt anchor. The crux is just getting off the ground!

Starts just to the right of the steep overhang. If there is another group there they are usually on it.


Bolts and small nut or cam to protect between the 2nd and third bolt.

Love this climb! I placed a cam in a crack near a hand hold, between the 2nd and 3rd bolt, for peace of mind. Rough beginning, but very fun.

Stemming is key to taking the bite out of the lower half of the route. Slick and polished, but excellent rock.

Crux is getting off the ground for sure. There is a thin finger crack between bolts 2-3 that you cant see from the ground. I stuck a .3 BD C4 in it, but looks like you could get anything around that range in there (or nuts as well).
