Description

This is the left most route at [Parachute Rock], with the first bolt lingering a bit high. Good gear is found before the bolt. Friction climbing on big crystals, with some face holds. Pass the overlap and belay. Walk off to the left. Miss Bliss provides a good warm up for the crack climbs to the right, and deservingly gets 2 stars by Hubbel for an interesting scurry up solid rock.

Protection

2 modern bolts, plus gear, mostly small

I saw this climb in a Mark Rolofson Garden of the Gods guidebook, that had it listed at rating of 5.7. I agree with the rating, and the publication also has the first ascent (Stewart Green & Martha Morris) in 1996. Aug 24, 2009
First ascent by Stewart Green and Martha Morris in May of 1998. Apr 7, 2004
