Up high in the gully on the east side, you will see the obvious right-facing dihedral with nice white granite and sharp edges, this is Cheap Thrills. A little south of this is a ramp that works right, climb this ramp to the one bolt anchor at the base of the line. A Bright Shining Lie then continues up the slightly gritty face. The only scary move is off the piton that looks like it has seen better days. The moves up higher seemed to be the crux, but all in all, a very consistent climb. Now I know I have said this before, but if this climb saw more traffic, it would really clean up.


12 bolts and a pin + a two-bolt anchor. I cut off all the slings and added brand new chains.
