Nate Dogg coming up Vultures are Waiting.


Route starts on highest belay pad on the left and has red and tan hangers. The route is mostly vertical at the start and climbs generally up and right. After climbing the cobble crack for a bit, it then trends up and right to the giant cobble on the arete which you get to surmount. Lower from the anchor or belay your partner up and give them the lead on the sloppy second.


Farthest route to the left. Uphill from the roof. Above the third belay pad.


6 or 7 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.

Good warmup/intro to the area, I was a gripped for the first 3 bolts (bit thin, bit loose) then things eased up nicely.

You can stop halfway up the pitch by traversing right to the 2 bolt anchor of the 11 and hang draws on it if you're into the pinkpointing thing...
