This is a cool route with some hard power moves.


The first bolted route on the right side of the crag.


Four clips and one medium piece will get you to a two-bolt anchor.

Pretty good before the crux which is hopelessly contrived.

On my first lap I ran the crux, sight unseen similarly to the way the pictures show. Second time I found a way to do it without going right of the main feature which was actually a nicer line and more technique, but less gropey. This route might not be so hard, but it would be hard to onsight, so I'd give it 11c. Also, it might get another star someday if it really cleans up, but meanwhile it's a bit dirty.
