This is a fun route with varied climbing and some interesting moves. Begin by climbing up a slab with a couple bolts and then transition into a steep, left-angling corner with a couple more bolts and some cam placements.


This is the route farthest right at Sunset Cliff.


4 bolts and some small cams. There are 2 open coldshuts at the top.

Fantastic route. Mixed climbing isn't always this fun, but it should be. I put a small nut between bolt 2 and 3 and then a #0.75 BD after the 5th bolt.
