This is the far right route and climbs through the steepest section of the wall. Please stick-clip the first bolt to avoid any possible diggers off the ledge. This route begins with easy climbing that quickly gives way to a thin pocket crux complete with a half-pad crimp mono! A long reach to and off of a decent mono marks the crux, but the steep black bulge above should not be taken lightly. This route has great sequential climbing on great stone. The top can get a little dirty from run-off early in the season.


5 bolts, funky anchor consisting of two locking carabiners.

You just kind of have to hang the half-pad mono and reach. You don't really have to yard on it. Plus, think of the bragging rights! How many half-pad monos do you ever use? Dec 25, 2002
