Description 

Tough start leads to good face climbing. After passing the two bolts, you'll go into a seam up to the top. As other routes on 'Fear Rock', the start is the toughest part of the climb.


Location 

This is one of the right most routes on 'Fear Rock'. It's the bolted route on the right most side of the formation. The approach to 'Fear Rock' is not trivial, expect 20 minutes of boulder hopping.


Protection 

Two bolts to a single bolt rappel or walk off. If you want to protect the seam, bring small to medium pro. There used to be two bolts up at the top, but only one remains.

Fun route. First 10 feet is pumpy but big ledges. Runout eases considerably. One bolt hanger missing on anchor
