The leftmost of four bolted routes.
Climb a slab past 6 bolts to a ledge, then up a headwall with easier climbing to the top. The crux is smearing on edges and pure friction past the first 4 bolts. (5.10a)
The rock quality is less than perfect, but will only get better with traffic.
6 bolts, CDs from 1 to 1.5 inches. 2 bolt anchor 80 ft.

We enjoyed this route last weekend. Some loose stuff, but it's cleaning up nicely already.

As of 4/22, this route still rains with kitty litter.

Not a person out seeking the slab routes I found this quite enjoyable and thankful of my partner Kelly who was doing all the leading for the day. Well placed bolts with the crux probably around the 4th bolt then eases considerably towards the top. Thoughtful anchors make for an easy rap. I would not consider this a grain pile spring of 2014.... must have cleaned up or my bar for such quite low?
