Scramble 15 feet up to the starting ledge. The route is short, yet continuous, featuring pockets and edges. It is a good last route of the day...or a good warm-up for Suedehead or something of a similar grade.


This is the first route to be seen on the road down to "The Bank", on a detached pillar on the left side of the road, just after the parking area.


3 bolts and a 2 bolt anchor.

Cool route! Beautiful deadpoints between sinker pockets. If only it was longer, it would be a classic! The rating of 5.12a/b seemed a little sandbagged to me. Either way, a great route that is often overlooked and should see a lot more traffic.
