A short and not especially memorable route left of H.R. Hardman.

Begin 20' left of H.R. Hardman and climb the face past two bolts. Decent pro and moves but not as high-quality as the neighboring route.


2 bolts, 2 bolt ring anchor (all 3/8")

This route must have been mis-rated, because its so much easier than its neighboring climbs. Would have been a great lead for someone at that level if it weren't dangerously runout! Oct 23, 2009

Opening moves likely the "crux", the two bolts are widely spread but rock is solid. Smearing, edging and dishes all the way. Nov 29, 2014

Lot's of bolts being added in the Park lately... watch out retrodrillers. The cops are ramping it up. Nov 7, 2016
