This is a great route, and would be very popular if not shadowed by some of the classic, harder neighbors. This route stays dry in a light rain. Start at the cheater stones to gain a flake system. Climb up the flake system to an overhang. Traverse right, following the good holds. Pull up through the overhang and then trend left toward the anchors. The holds just below that last bolt begin to get pumpy. Nice fun route!


From the Miner's ladders, head up stream to the Cirque. This line is a the left side of the Cirque, about 20 ft past Hourglass, 5.12a. This route shares the same start at the flake as Nag, 5.11b.


6 brand new stainless bolts with fixed draws were just put in.
