The climb starts off in the tree on the far left of P Wall. Shown as route 1 in the topo. You'll have to do some fanangling to get up there and then you'll get to enjoy some nice positive ledges to some blank spots. Real thinker of a route if I remember correctly.


This route is traditionally bolted - which means it can be fairly scary if you're relying just on draws. I seem to remember a black alien being a good, good thing here.

The bolts on this route have been replaced. From afar the new bolts look brown and rusty, like the old ones, but when you get to them you will realize that they are brown and painted. Keep in mind the route has an "R" rating.

Some big reaches and moves after bolt #3. Felt harder than Knee Surgery to the left.
