Warning: First bolt is at top of 40 foot slab! People climbing at this grade should place gear before attempting to clip the first bolt or they risk a very nasty fall. The slab can accept at least 6 pieces of gear, so it is easily protected. Very small (size 1 metolius mastercam) to large finger size cams, offset nuts, and a 4" cam/#4 camalot (on loose sounding large flake shared with Lichen) can easily be placed on this climb. Some of the rock is hollow sounding, but most of the gear is solid. Might be a good first trad lead, as it is not heady at all.

You will want long runners to reduce rope drag, as the gear is all over the place.

Fun climb, though half of it is basically a hike. Can share the last bolt with Lichen or place a nut in the crack 3 feet left of that bolt. Shares anchors with Lichen. Jan 25, 2014
