Climb the face to the right of the seam....


Climb up the nose of the slab. Ascend the slab up the center of the wall past flakes at mid-height. Continue up the bulge to a ledge and an anchor.

Eds. The length of the route is listed as longer, since using a the 2 anchor bolts and a 100' rope will not allow you to belay your second from the ground. It was originally listed as a 30' route.


This is on the Short Slab Wall left of the steep section.


Standard rack. Two bolt anchor.

This looks harder from the ground than it really is.

Okay, this one is a slight mystery as to where it is.

Is this the line?

Deb does something that may be 5.6.

Doug tries something 5.7 or 5.8 perhaps.

Pretty sure it is the second picture you posted, Leo. I also found the slab at the top awfully stiff for 5.6 or even 5.7. I would even go as far as 5.8+, but I might have missed something or been totally off route as well.
