Description

This is the right of two routes sharing an anchor and on the right side of the crag. Easy moves off the deck lead to a tricky sequence moving around the arete. It has good quality rock and fun climbing. While this may appear overbolted in the lower section, the climbing is still committing between clips 3 and 5. Overall, the climbing seemed far more tricky than it appeared from the ground. Don't be fooled, there is still a difficult move guarding the slab above.

Protection

10 bolts and something for the double bolt anchor at the top.

I thought this route was about 10c in difficulty. It is definitely harder than 10a! Jul 23, 2014

This area has hardly been visited. Decent climb - terrible approach... walk further downroad up a grassy slope and then back to the west - avoid scrambling up the loose dirt like I did on the west side. Route isn't 10a. Aug 20, 2012

Fun route but harder than 10a (Rolofson has it at 10d in his new guide, but I would not say it's that hard...). Best approached from the NE using the very faint trail from Tetanus crag (the dirt slope below the Garden Wall is very loose) Sep 7, 2007
