Climb a slab past two bolts to reach a left-slanting dike system which is followed up to a third bolt where you'll encounter the crux. Once past the crux one more bolt leads to anchors at the top.

Enjoyable moves, quality rock and the suberb view from the top make this a route worth seeking out if in the area. Two stars out of five.


This lies to the right of the actual Negropolis formation on a similar sized pillar of rock with a slanting dike system and down and left from the block with Girls in the Mist.


4 bolts, bolted anchor/rap (all 3/8")

Very fun and almost worth hiking up there just for this route alone. I agree with Cho in that the crux is working the dike to gain the 3rd bolt; somewhat thought provoking but not overly difficult. Actually claiming to my partners that it may be easier than Love Bandit to the right.

Whatever the grade, it's worth climbing. Very fun, nicely bolted, solid rock and sport-anchors. What else are you looking for in a 50' climb? Oct 27, 2013
Real nice route. Clipping the third bolt from a stance wasn’t happening for me (5’8), so an off balance move, which felt like the crux, was necessary first. Gonna go with 10b. Jan 22, 2013
