A locals classic? Clean rock up a featured, but never very positive, less than vertical dihedral. Good, but holds a bit more of a reputation than it’s worth in this author’s opinion. I think it’s another example of a route that gets easier the more you get it wired so the weathered locals like to call it 5.7 and grin as visitors and newbies struggle to find the moves. Some route finding that makes you think, the rock is good, and it’s a nice change from the repetitive hueco pulling throughout the rest of the crag - but there’s much better on the wall. Still well worth doing.


Far left of the wall, third route from the end. Look for the white dihedral.


5 bolts plus anchor.
