Description

Rossiter rates this as 10c, but it is definitely not that hard. The pump factor may push the grade to 10, but technically it's 9. This route is 15 feet west of the West Bench of the amphitheatre, on the north-facing wall, a gentle overhanging route with the holds getting smaller as you go up. The crux is the moves above the third bolt. You should not have to use the large crack anywhere past the 1st bolt. This rock is a little flaky... we pulled a 12" plate off the rock in October of 1999.

Protection

4 bolts to 2 chains. Some trad gear for the start. Access the bolts for TR via a 4th class chimney about 30 feet to the right of the route.
