Description

This route goes up the face just to the right of the large roof to the right of the initial crack but staying left of the Jamuary crack on the right. It is a little tricky getting started up the initial overhang at the base of the route.

Protection

Bring long slings/extra rope to make this anchor.

Note: This route is labeled by the Butterfly McQueens' Birthday correctly on the bottom of the image but is also marked incorrectly as Jamuary at the top. Jamuary is the crack to the right. Dec 30, 2003

I think that this could actually be a great sport line if the sandstone is hard enough to hold bolts and cleans well. It's definitely more challenging if you stay in the middle of the face and avoid the cracks on either side. I think it could go at at least 5.10. Nov 6, 2018
