Located towards the left side of the lower tier, this route is obvious because of the honeycomb lattice at the top of the route.

Giant crimpy moves and overhung eyecandy make you forget that you're on a slab, and that you don't have to do pullups the whole way up.

The first bolt is a little unncessary, especially since a better place to belay on this route will be above it.

Part of the fun is figuring out a comfortable position to clean the anchor at the top.


4 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.

(10/7/2007) Beware the top anchor, as one of the bolts is wobbling.
It is a great first sport lead for someone. Apr 22, 2005

I figured this route would be a straight-forward sport route but I had more trouble on it than I care to admit. Granted my hands were only 75% functional from a previous accident but I constantly felt I was on an overhanging wall throughout much of the climb and felt awkward. Clipping one or two of the bolts was very difficult for me. I would say that this is a difficult lead for a 5.8 or 5.9 climber. But then again, others may feel more comfortable with this type of climbing. It was the first climb in the area so maybe the second time around I would be less stressed. All in all, a good climb. A humbling one, but a good one! Jul 25, 2005
To avoid a pendulum fall on toprope, leave the rope clipped into the last quickdraw before the anchors. Otherwise you could be faced with a nasty swing into a dihedral. Dec 2, 2005

Enjoyable sport lead. Oct 19, 2006
I lead this route this Sunday (10/7/07). The right anchor bolt is loose – not just spinning but wobbling, maybe a quarter inch back and forth: not good. I’m not qualified to re-bolt it; otherwise I’d replace it myself. As for a first sport lead – choose something safer. The climbing is reasonably easy (remember to use the slab to the right, instead of just hanging from the swiss cheese) and the clipping stances are decent. However, there are too many ledges etc. to hit if you do fall. This was my first outdoor lead and, looking back, I don’t think it was a very good idea. Oct 10, 2007
Does anyone know the status of that loose anchor bolt? May 22, 2013

Climbed this yesterday. Several bolts are rusty; anchor bolts are both rusty and will spin a bit. All were sturdy enough that I didn't feel like I would die, and stood up well to all manner of tugs. However, I would NOT recommend anyone climb this route as is, which is a shame, it was fun and tricky for a 5.8. Sep 10, 2017
Top anchor bolt still loose as of December 2017. It felt okay to me - I led it to set a top rope off the bolts, and while it is wobbling, it didn't seem ready to come out of the rock, but use your own discretion. The birds have definitely been using this area, so be prepared to put your hand in bird poop. Jan 4, 2018

Challenging but fun. Bring hand sanitizer due to the amount of bird feces you'll be touching. Anchor bolts are old, right one is wobbling side to side. Hanger on bolt 3 is spinning. Beautiful pockets on the left are solid. Sep 9, 2018

Mistook the bird poop for chalk, don't make the same mistake. Oct 5, 2018
