Description

The route starts directly below the left hole that is about 100' up, it's pretty far around the corner to the right from Figures. Head directly up and over a large flake to reach the first bolt. At the 2nd bolt, go up a little and right through the first crux. The fall is safe, but the bolt is not *right there*.

The second crux is a fun well-protected roof 4' from the belay. Continue up standard 5.10 Josh slab to the top. The topout was a bit grainy, hopefully this will improve with traffic.

Protection

The first pitch has three bolts that are difficult to see from the ground, bring a couple medium size pieces and several slings for tieoffs. The 2nd pitch goes straight through the well protected roof, to characteristically spicy 5.10 slab to top out.

This excellent route was established by Bob Gaines and Dave Mayville in 1990. Nice description of the "spicy" 5.10 slab finish! May 2, 2003

Forgot to add that there is a chain anchor on the 1st pitch and six bolts on the second pitch before reaching a 2-bolt anchor up top (no chains). Descend via the rappel route at the summit of the formation (2nd rope not needed). May 2, 2003
