Description

Located on "Surprising Crag - South Face". Locate this route by counting 4 routes from the obvious chimney on the south face. The start of this route could be a little cleaner, as there are many loose blocks, pull down not out. Climb through a small bulge past 5 more bolts to the anchors. PG-13 by first bolt for beginners, and rock quality, be careful.

Protection

6 bolts - 2 bolt anchor.

Fun warm-up, another high first clip, but there are fun crack variations to be had on this one. Apr 13, 2014

So freaking greasy... tried this on a cold day, I'd hate to think about this on a hot day. I slipped off a couple of holds when I grabbed them and ended up throwing a heel up. Don't commit to any single move with your hands below the first few bolts. Sep 27, 2014

I have no idea what the person above is talking about, this isn't greasy at all. In fact, I lost skin in the crack at the bulge due to the grittiness of the rock, and the holds leading up to it are super positive. Not the greatest route, but it's a fun little warm-up. Oct 31, 2014

We climbed most of the routes to the left and right and felt this one was the most challenging. Aug 21, 2017
