Motor up the low-angled slab that gradually steepens near the top (crux) to a bolted anchor beneath a headwall. Short and not especially memorable, but it is worth doing if in the area, and/or waiting to get on Comic Book. One star out of five.


Located 60' right of Comic Book and immediately to the right of Charlie Brown (5.9), a right-facing corner system.


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


I think I may have climbed this route. It seemed like it started a bit more than 40' to the right of Comic Book though. The route I did had four bolts up a slab to a two bolt anchor by a yucca plant I think. Loose flaky rock but new bolts are what I remember. It felt like 5.9. Mar 24, 2005
The climbing between the widely spaced bolts is mostly low angled and easy. There are a few sections though, where shorter folks will have to commit to some steep moves a long way past your last bolt to clip. Probably not the best route for the budding 5.8 leader. Two bolts with hangers only up top, so bring some extra webbing in case the stuff up there is mank. Looks short from the ground, but longer than 50 feet, maybe 70-80. Dec 19, 2012
