This is a nice route on a sunny but chilly day. Route can be dirty though. Follow the left trending seam past 8 bolts to the top of the cliff and a 3-bolt/chain anchor. For easier cleaning I suggest you have your partner second the climb while cleaning and then you both rap off.


Middle of the wall just to the right of the severe looking overhang.


8 Bolts

Follow the bolt ladder.

Maybe the best route of it's grade on the highway, with good rock. Unlike many routes around here, this one actually follows a singular line, not just another highly-featured face. Steep! Very clean and no dirt as of 6/2013.
