this section is a bit nasty but the top is really ...


Up the big, blocky crystals to a crux after the 2nd bolt. The 3rd bolt is hidden from the ground but is just past some the bigger of the blocky crystals above. Take a second to check out the black tourmaline gems above but please leave them for the next rock dancer to appreciate.

Some of the rock can easily flick off, so be careful if your belayer is directly below you.


The right end of the crag hosts two bolted routes. This is the one on the left and is also the 2nd route from the right end of this crag.


4 bolts to LO

the upper half is awesome, with really cool rock... but the first half has ugly movement on crappy rock...
