About half way.


Short bouldery and steep crux at the start transitions into an incredible face on made to order incuts followed by a one move wonder out a bulge at 2/3 height that leads to the anchor. Doesn't get much better then this for the grade at Independence Pass.


Roughly the middle of the Olympic Wall as you walk West to East slightly downhill and then back up spot a large boulder detached from the wall and a 30' low angle slab just to the left of the boulder that leads to the base of the cliff. The route starts on over hanging rock just to the left of a shady alcove. The first clip is from a large flat jug just below the bolt.


5 bolts; cold shut anchor.
