The 5.9 mixed route follows the yellow line

The crux of this route is at the top and protected by 3 bolts.

Location 

Work your way up into obvious squeeze chimney and be sure to wear pants or knee pads! This one is the 5.9. the 5.8 start follows the small cracks to the left. This area was cleaned up with the help of Christian Rodenbeck, Robert Mcleod, Andy Tretiakoff and Nick Spriggshall.

Protection 

Small Tcu's and Camalots to #5. Doubles on #4 helpful and lot of long slings. 2 bolt coldshut anchor.
