Description

Immediately right of 'The Ground Doesn't Lie' is a bolted line that starts off a block at 12 feet or so. Scramble up to the first clip and negotiate another adhered block on its right side. You can make a clip before standing up to run the nice 5.10 face above. The last couple of bolts are a bit spacey, but the climbing is secure, edgy, and chock full of good ledges for the feet.

I thought there were two "cruxes" one was getting established above the second bolt and another arose somewhere in the chocolate face below the anchor. A worthy problem to play on for the foot work, however, it is not very strenuous.

Note, over the years, this route has become quite rounded in places.

Quickdraws and a rope.

Spacey indeed. I would only head up this one if you are solid in the 10s. The final crux puts you in ledge-fall potential. This one is a bit easier with a longer draw at the crux. Jun 18, 2012

Yes, clipping the 3rd bolt is sketchy. I got the bolt clipped with a draw, but could not continue the balance to clip the rope. Apr 15, 2017
