This is the right bolted route in the backstage. Climb up onto ramp and pull right on to a bizarre slab. Follow this up to bolt four, reach past the crux (tall is good), and trend left to the roof. Avoid the flakes to the right of bolt 5 and 6 as they are hollow. Run it out (for now) across easy slab (20 feet)and clip the final bolt. Pull out the roof through a fun finger crack (you can place a piece from a good stance) to the anchors.

Other than the currently runout section, the majority of the moves are in the 9/9+ range. It's a little dirty right now from a large flake I removed. As it cleans up it will be worthy of 2 stars.


7 Bolts currently (one more will be installed between 6 and 7).

A medium TCU (Yellow) can be placed just before the top.
