Description

This is the right bolted line on the SE face. It is steep and pumpy and has a smooth bulge that bewilders.

Protection

2 anchors at the top. I believe 4 bolts on the way to the top. Some small gear could help take a bite out of the runout.

Once again, a long way to the first bolt but it can be protected well. Quite fun with sustained cool moves. I swear the rock almost seems like limestome in some weird way. Sep 14, 2004
This route is quite the squeeze job, or maybe it's the one to the left or right.

Fun enough. Jun 23, 2009

Totally contrived... It is difficult to stay off of the routes to the left and right, which are actual lines. May 14, 2011

while i completely agree, i'd take tip-toeing around on this route in the middle of january over going to the gym any day. i like it. May 14, 2011

I agree, but wouldn't it be a better thing to toprope as an eliminate instead of bolting something that has to be climbed like a one foot wide ladder to avoid touching the routes on either side? May 15, 2011

I agree with Ben...I kept feeling like I was off route; it is easy to reach holds on the routes to either side. If you are there it might be worth doing but the two 9's that flank it are both better. Nov 15, 2012
