Description

Begin at the top of a boulder with a small platform on top (Two bolt belay anchor). Clip the first bolt on a slightly overhanging face and make difficult / technical moves (12-)to a polished dish. Step up left into another dish and clip the second bolt. Continue on thin edges past two more bolts (5.11) and reach a horn at the base of a finger / hand crack. Relatively easy climbing leads to a bulging checkerboard patina face (5.9+). Small TCU's or stoppers / brass protect the final moves to the top. Exquisite rock!!

Protection

Quickdraws for four bolts, small to medium cams, and small stoppers. A two bolt rappel anchor is at the top of the route. Two ropes are required to reach the ground (140').

Continuous through the first four bolts, although there are stances. Not dangerous, but it will get your heart pumping! 4 of 5 stars. Mar 22, 2004

I would add that the second had better be solid. Even with a fairly tight rope my second hit the belay ledge popping off at the crux. May 30, 2005
