This route climbs better than you think it will. Make some pretty easy moves to a good rest and climb through the bulge (crux) quickly.


The furtherest route on the left side of the crag.

This route is not bad. If you decide to get on it and 10b is at your limit then the onsite will feel tough.

People either like this route or hate it. Lock-off strength a plus for the cruxy roof section.

Some thought is required for this route as it is not obvious. After the short roof section the route is pretty sustained, making a tough onsight.

"2nd pitch" of 5.9 crack (medium cams) is definitely worth doing and can be linked together with the first into one long pitch
