This route take a basically straight line. Many of the holds are quite polished, but not as bad as some of the routes to its left. The first bolt is about 15 feet up, if you are not solid on this grade, stick-clipping the first bolt is a good idea.
  • RCM&W #62, p.130.


This route is located to the left of Micro Balls on the right edge of the face.


5 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor. Please use your own gear for top roping. If the anchor biners look worn, please just replace them instead of complaining below that they are worn.

The anchors could really use some new carabiners; the existing ones look really worn. A heads up to anyone heading there soon; definitely advised to not TR off them (not that that ever happens...).

Ankles beware. Must do if you only do the generic wall.
