The route follows 7 bolts up edges and flakes to a two bolt anchor.


7 bolts and a 2 bolt anchor. 60 meter rope will suffice.


The route sits in between Jolly Jugular and Parr Four.

On the face to the right of Jolly Jugular. The crux is the delicate moves on the textured face on the bottom portion of the route. My partner and I broke off several small nubs, which made me thankful for the reasonably spaced bolts.

This route is a straightforward climb with well placed bolts close enough together to make it a good climb for beginning leaders.

The crux seems to be between bolts 1 and 2 - it's a little thin if you don't go too far left - once you hit the third bolt and those great flakes to the right, it's smooth sailing.
