Description

This route is located on the left end of the contest wall just past "Liquid Pork" and can be spotted easily as it is a bolted crack with another bolt line just right (using first 2 bolts of this route). This route is fairly straightforward and a little dirty but decent. It is a good warm-up, although warming up on cracks for pocketed limestone may be a bit much...? Have fun with this one, and then move on to something better. Cheers.

Per Mike Dallin: I found this to be a quality route, made safer with the recent retrobolt. Balancy climbing past the first two bolts (can stickclip the second) leads to jugs. Then head underneath a roof (with some loose stuff - I broke off a foot and handhold in this area), turn the roof to the left, and handjam/stem your way to the anchor. Watch for bird crap under the roof. I thought it was harder than 10a, and I would call it more like 10c. The 1990 Mark Van Horn guidebook called it 10c/d.

Protection

5 bolts (homemade painted red) - 2 bolt anchor. Per Brandon Schirm: This route was just rebolted and has around 11 bolts now.

Pretty long and fun route. It's got it all. Balancy slab moves at the bottom, heady roof, and some fun jams up the dihedral at the top. May 4, 2014

This is a great route. Pretty sequency start, but it goes smooth if you find the feet. Loved the roof problem, and there are many ways you can tackle it. I opted for the high feet undercling. Really fun! Mar 6, 2017

Super fun moves in a variety of styles. Bolt 1 to 2 is probably the hardest part but you can stick clip B2 easily. Jams up top are sharp if not used to the whole crack thing. Mar 27, 2017
