This is sharp, like other nearby face routes. Clip the first bolt and work through very thin face moves for 3 more bolts. Use of the mono pocket may be necessary. Pull onto the ledge with slopers and continue on easier 5.10 climbing above.


First bolt line on the face next to the cave. There are two more routes on the face to the left before the route in the dihedral.


12 bolts, bolted anchor

The first few bolts will either feel desperate or highly sequence-y for a 10. Meh.

Still, the Huey DOES list this as a 10+, NOT the 11a posted here.

Beware the hornet hive about 3/4 of the way up this route (as of 8/9/13). Bring along your epi-pen and/or bee charming skills.
