This route is more of a mind game than others, due to the height of the first bolt. (This is also why I gave it a PG-13 rating.) Otherwise a fun route, that is long enough to serve as a warm-up for the routes on the opposing wall.


This route is the second to last route on the east (right) side of the corridor. You have to walk nearly all the way to the back of the corridor to reach the start.


7 bolts to anchors.

Definitely a PG-13 route, the first bolt is somewhat high, I climbed slightly right of the bolt and was able to clip with a high left hand. I believe the middle of the route is a sustained .10 and the last 3 bolts are just fun :). 2 Bolts at the top for anchors. (Oct-2010)
