Me stemming into the offwidth.


The first pitch heads up the left-most corner on the sun deck. At the small roof head right towards a two bolt anchor. Once there, traverse right and up easy climbing towards the offwidth. Up the OW and to the anchors. Walk off or rap down.


The first ptch is mostly midrange cams. Second pitch is small cams and nuts and Big pro if you have it.

This route is spooky, and I found the roof on this route intimidating. It's an interesting climb, but the climb is difficult for the other 5.7s I've climbed. This would not be a good choice for a first lead at this grade.
