A good warm up route, with good pro for the hard moves. Definately not as straight forward as some routes (in a good way). You have to run out the upper easy slab. Descend down and right.


Three bolts protect fun and unusual face moves for the first 25 feet; run it out after that. Bring 2-3 inch pro for the belay (top of Afterthought crack).


Not a bomb, not a destination. Dec 13, 2004
