This is an good route - one of the better ones at this cliff. Start about 20 right of the obvious difficult slab climbing of Full Respect where there is a small overhang about 10 feet off the ground. This one climbs through the left side of the overhang.

Stem up, make a difficult first clip, then use a left sidepull that is not nearly as good as you hope to pull over the little roof.

After about 3 more bolts, another crux is surpassed with good pro. You get slopey feet and hands for two moves, then it's easy all the way to the top.

This was climbed solo by Ed Ash in the 1980s.


12 bolts, good slab footwork.

Agree with the description here. First clip isn't too bad is you find the right feet. I really enjoyed the second crux movement. I found a good high left hand that let me muscle right past. Top is pretty basic but makes for a decent finish of a moderate start.
