DescriptionThin and continuous for much of the upper half, this challenging face route is best done when conditions are cold and crisp to ensure success. Although reasonably well protected for much of it's length the stretch going to the last bolt is a good 20 feet between bolts, so heads-up!
Start up a thin flake system, pass a black knob, and work up left and then back right to reach the 3rd bolt and the start of the difficulties. Move slightly right and up on tiny edges/friction to reach the 4th bolt and then continue up gradually more featured face to the top.
- Originally rated 5.11a this climb has gotten more difficult over time as most of the tiny edges used on the first ascent have broken off and the rock has become polished from traffic.
