Climb directly up to the very odvious crack near the top.


You can either top rope this, using the bolts to the left of the crack, trad lead this, or solo it - which isn't too scary.

Definitely agree with Damon and Evan regarding the spinning bolt anchor here. It isn't too difficult to back it up, so do it. Dec 20, 2016

one of the bolt achors at the top of this climb is rattling around and loose, the bolt seems solid but probably not a bad idea to back up the bolt with a cam (I used at #3 camalot) just for redundency with the top rope set up. May 24, 2015

Takes lots of good gear, 2"-4" pieces will sew it up well. Apr 10, 2012
