DescriptionThis climb is essentially a direct start to the route House Of The Homeless that joins that route at it's second bolt.
Start down and right from House Of The Homeless and lieback the edge of a wide crack to reach a high first bolt which protects more liebacking along the edge of the narrowing crack (crux) to reach a second bolt. Higher, join House Of The Homeless for it's near-vertical crux and shared anchors with that route.
Originally lead without the lower two bolts and later climbed with the added bolts thinking it was a first ascent. The climbing is fun, even if a little a little contrived, but overall a good addition to the area for the sport climbing crowd. One star out of five.
