There is no real significant ledge near the top like I first thought. The route is slightly over-hung (not near as much as its neighbors), but there's nothing that looks like it would eat your rope.


This route is the next one to the right of Yellow Jacket. They share the first bolt.


5 bolts, plus chains

Pretty sketchy belay on a steep scree slope. The first bolt is a little too high for comfort. There is a bomber jug to the right of the first bolt to clip off of, but a fall would drop you 15 feet onto a bunch of rocks. Really not that enjoyable of a climb in my opinion.
