Unprotected slab moves to an obvious stance gain the first bolt and then steep continuous smearing past the second bolt concludes the crux at the obvious jug; thoughtful friction above leads to anchors. Two stars out of five.


Starts just left of the obvious dike/crack which splits the formation.


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

This is a surprisingly good route. The rock is not at all as grainy as it might suggest from afar. Crux is the first two bolts with a thank-god hold afterwards. Enjoyable smearing the rest of the way takes one to nice anchors at the top. Mar 11, 2013
