This climb is in between Arturo's Special (5.8) and Mission Impossible (5.11b). It's good 'ol dome home Josh friction bumps, gets sun in the morning and shade in the afternoon, was recently bolted by unknown suspects and is a great lead.


six bolts, two bolt anchor/rap (all you need is a rack of draws)

A well-protected addition to the area that features continuous climbing for most of it's length. Pro to 1" might be desired to reach the first bolt. The rock quality is on the crunchy side, but more traffic will help to clean it up. One star out of five (maybe two stars if it cleans up more).

Found myself tending to the left of the bolts on occasion. Maybe I'm not tuned up on JT friction, but I thought this was more like 10b/c (much like Chris).
