This route deviates from the others on the lower section of cliff. Half way up, a slight bulge interrupts the easier terrain. A little footwork when the jugs run out leads to the anchors.


The farthest right route of the newly developed section of cliff. Right of Arizona Bay.


9 bolts to 2 bolt anchor.
