Glitter Box area. South facing face. From the parking area, hike east past the fence and a large boulder.


Starts on top of a large boulder. Six bolt face with many horizontal cracks. Traverses right after third bolt and over a small bulge between bolts 5 and 6. Good route with decent exposure and great views. One bolt and webbing on top.

Great end-of-the-day climb (easy and fun).

Great top rope variation: Start in the chimney to the left, transition to the right side, top out by the balancing boulder. Dubbed "The Fresh Prince variation" by FA Matt Henk, 3/09

Descent climb its in the sun and can get hot in the afternoon, not the best climb in LDC but descent if your looking for an easy climb.

Nice new looking sport anchors installed on this -- thanks to whoever did that! The kind that you can clip the rope into and lower right off.

Would bring a wrench and tighten down the bolts a bit, though!
