Description

This is currently the rightmost route on the same wall as Mr Meanor. Start right of a large flat boulder and a few feet right of the first bolt. Move up to clip the first bolt, then follow an obvious white streak/ridge. Go straight up after clipping the fourth bolt. Clip the fifth and last bolt and scramble up slightly right 15-20 feet to the chains.

Protection

5 bolts and chain anchor. Small cams or stoppers can be used between bolts or above fifth bolt if desired.

Loved this climb! Great to follow the white streak. The route is easier than it looks from the ground as the bottom bolts have thin but very nicely textured holds. Cannot see the fifth bolt until you are close to it. The climbing above the last bolt is run-out but easy climbing gets one to the chains B4 you know it! Oct 29, 2011

if this route was taller and didnt taper out to a scramble it would be majestic , fun starting moves and holds here Oct 14, 2009
I led this climb today, and it had all the bolts. Very fun climb, especially in the novice level. Oct 11, 2009

5 bolts no gear supplement needed. If you're ticking the formation why not? Besides the left leaning crack makes for an interesting feature to follow.

Nice. Apr 20, 2009

As of today, the entire climb is bolted pretty well. It may be hard to spot all the bolts from the ground, but it felt fine to me with no gear. Dec 1, 2008
Ben, Lynda and I put this up in stages, but together. Ben really liked this route and I agree with Vince: if only it would go on.............. Originally it did start right, never liked that. The direct start Ben finally bought into. kas Nov 30, 2008

I was at this wall in June, 2006 and all the bolts were there. Good climb. Jun 5, 2006

Why is Ben being consulted regarding the necessity of bolts on a route that he didn't put up? Doesn't sound kosher to me... Apr 30, 2006

FWIW, I'm the one who mentioned to Ben that I thought some of the bolts on this route were unnecessary.

Thanks, Ben, for being willing to go back and take another look at the route! Jan 31, 2005

The first two bolts have been removed by Ben Burnham by request. The moves can be covered by small stoppers or very small cams. Jan 31, 2005

If you are in the mood for a harder start, you can traverse left up the white streak rather than starting right of the first bolt - that bumps the rating about half a grade. Mar 16, 2004

The first 35 feet of this is better than any of the other moderates in this area. Lots of nice moves. I only wish it would go on longer. Feb 15, 2004
