A good route with some fun moves. Though it is a bit out of place among the harder routes here. It would be a very popular route if it was at the meadows or something.

Anyway, climb a chimney/OW section off the ground. Follow cracks to the right and around a roof. Then climb an easy face that is like Dirtigo but with one 5.7ish move on it befor reaching the anchors.


As you head up the gully in to the main area look on the left wall for a left facing corner next to a wide off-width/squeeze chimney. This route is on the right climbing the chimney.


10 bolts to anchor.

I can't think of a better 5.7 on the hill.

Fantastic 5.7, well worth it. However, getting to the base is a pain in the ass. Just left of the chimney following the easiest looking line. You do have an option at the finish to step left and continue up the face finishing the neighboring 5.10 (upper part might be easier than 5.10).
