The first 30 feet or so of this route are on vertical clean rock with some interesting movement. There is a difficult move after clipping the first bolt. After the first half you turn a lip and finish the route on 30' of slab. Like all good slabs, this is smearing on little edges and dishes.


6 or 7 bolts. The top is pretty run out, but easy. It can be protected with a #2 Camelot.

There were several of us that climbed this route in 1998 or so.
We never named it, but it is a great route.
