Description

this route is not really that much fun to do unless you plan on doing most if not all on this formation... it is short and uneventful. I rope soloed via TR on it today. After doing the actual route, go straight up for an additionl bit of fun. There is a walk up from the right of the formation that can be a bit tricky if you plan on TRing the route(s)... There are different sets of anchors that line the top... (It is becoming a rather OVERBOLTED formation lately)..it is easy enough to build your own anchors...

Protection

Small to medium pro for route and anchors (There are two bolts oddly distant from each other that can be used with long webbing/cord in order to TR or build your own anchor in a horizontal crack system right off the edge on top...

Actually a fun route. Eats pro well.
Pros: good quality rock on the zig-zag switching ramps, and above; takes good pro the whole way.
Cons: awkward start, lower ramp's crack has poor quality rock but it can be protected. The two ramps make the climb ledgy, protect well or don't fall far.
Larger cams (BD #3 or #4) helpful to protect climbing up to the second ramp.
Worth doing again. Dec 27, 2013

I like this one. Definitely a zig-zag but a fun one to lead at my level. It's a bit of a a walk-up but a couple good moves. The challenge is protecting it well. Bigger cams are your friend on that front. Jan 19, 2017
