Description

This route is on the left hand side of the wall. THe first two bolts are very close together and to the ground. The third bolt is up a ways past a dish. Edgy face climbing past a bulge or two to the chain anchors. Fun and sustained at 5.7.

Protection

9 bolts to two bolt anchor

[Hide Comment] Yup, the moves right at the top are at least 5.8-. This is one of my favorites. May 17, 2004

[Hide Comment] Excellent. This is almost three stars. May 20, 2005
[Hide Comment] I wouldn't argue with 5.8. And I wasn't tempted to skip any of the bolts, either! Really cool moves, fun and aesthetic. Apr 13, 2006

[Hide Comment] Fantastic climb with interesting features. Well bolted. Recommended for easy to moderate leaders.

Contains a second pitch of easier climbing to summit. No anchors so either walk off, double rope rappel off the tree, or use the anchors 15 feet below and to the right. Could be done as a long single pitch. Oct 20, 2007

[Hide Comment] The 2nd pitch is a must do with some easy but fun and well protected climbing past the anchors. Don't bother stopping at the anchor, just clip and belay 2nd from top then walk off following a 5 minute trail back to base. Oct 1, 2008

[Hide Comment] The 2ed pitch is AWESOME. Super fun albeit a bit lichen covered. If you are doing it as 2 pitches with a hanging belay you may want to traverse left to the anchors of the next route over to have more room at the belay (we did not do this but wished we had). Next time it's going down as a single rope-stretching pitch! Apr 30, 2012

[Hide Comment] 5.8 sounds reasonable. This is a GREAT route. Wish we'd done the second pitch. Doin' it for sure next time. Jan 17, 2014

[Hide Comment] Great crimpy face climbing. A good break from all the slab in the area. Apr 14, 2014

[Hide Comment] Super fun route! Perfect for a new leader. It felt well protected where it needed to be and a little run out where the climbing was easier. The last couple moves could be 5.8 Apr 17, 2016
