a good climb, although a bit sandy. It has lots of round holds, a distinct crux, and a few knee-bars.
A good line.


The arete on the right of a big groove.The groove is on the right of Stratocaster.


Many bolts

This route was a ground-up project begun by Paul Van Betten and Sal Mamusia. The line originally went up the gear-protected corner to the left of the current start, and they had already climbed and bolted most of the line (5 bolts above the initial gear start on the overhanging face were placed by this team). Dan McQuade happened to walk by, asked a few questions, then returned a few days later to rap-bolt an anchor and a bolted face start, claiming the first redpoint. The line is considered stolen to this day by locals.
