A great route for the rating, great for a warmup. There's a hueco jug perfectly placed just where you need it the whole way up.


Right most route of the three, works up the huecos and then onto the arete.


5 bolts + anchors (1 open shut, 1 clip).

Agreed - a great warm-up for the .10's. Fun jug hauling through the huecos and a little balance at the crux, thrown in for good measure.

If you're feeling lazy, at about the midway point, you can climb up the ramp around the right corner.
