Easy climbing leads to roof pulling on somewhat positive holds. Make a long reach up to the next hold over the roof, don't fall the last bolt is a long way down. I used a #4 camalot below the roof, to protect those moves. It's still not over once you get over the roof.


Main route on prominent corner with small roof system. To the right of Don't Take Yer Guns to Town.


five bolts.

Okay climb; the finish is the most exciting part.

Short and not particularly interesting except for the final overhung move (or two) to the anchors. The (new-ish?) 5.8 around the corner to the right is a better warmup.

I'm not entirely sure this is the right description for this route. The offering doesn't have a roof on it, and is only barely overhung at the top. The final moves to the chains can be a little heady for new leaders, but I've never seen anyone place gear.

The bolt line goes right! NOT straight up! I made the mistake of going up and I was hanging on the roof of the 10c route for like ten minutes before someone told me I was on the wrong line!
