Description

The difficult portion of this climb is right at the start between the 1st and 2nd bolts with some interesting footwork. The climb follows a ramp up and right, then traverses back to the left to a V slot.

Protection

Five (5) bolt protection. Two bolt anchor.

Fun route. The third bolt has been moved to a location that negates the necessity of supplemental gear on this route. The old SDCC guide mentioned a #4 TCU being necessary. The placement is still there if you want it, but the route is not runout or dangerous without it. Apr 4, 2006

Great Climb! The start moves on this may be 10a-ish if you are under 5.5. All finishing variations on this climb are good, but if you are going to set up a top rope it may be easiest to head straight up to the Obverse the Gap anchors past the last bolt. This, with a directional on the second bolt, makes for an awesome(low swing) TR. Enjoy! Apr 11, 2011

It was a hard start for me being 5'7. I was able to follow the rail to the right and up into the larger holds and to the ledge for a quick break. After that it was smooth sailing to complete the onsight. Pretty stoked and a fun climb. 5.10 moves at the bottom are what make the climb! May 8, 2011

Haven't finished this one free, yet. The start is a bit scary. 1st bolt almost useless for safety. The second bolt is a tad high and at the crux of the climb. Jan 21, 2012
The first bolt on this route is loose. 2012-06-15. Jun 16, 2012

Tightened first bolt. Successful onsite lead. Felt like a deck potential clipping the third bolt. I didn't see where the original 3rd bolt was...must have been nasty. Oct 17, 2012
One of the anchor bolt is spinning and rusty. Mar 31, 2014

Definitely a hard start! Chills out quite a bit after the first two bolts. Jul 6, 2014

all of the bolts looked good as of 4/1/17, however for some people not comfortable at the grade, the bolts were a little spaced out and due to the nature of it being a wandering route its a little worrisome what a fall at the wrong spot would do to the climber. Apr 2, 2017

First bolt spins a bit but is still solid. Really only there so if you fall, you and your belayer dont roll off the slab. Would still deck. Bolts 3 and 4, best to use alpine and extend to reduce rope drag. Fun route! Bouldery start with fun corner to top out. Sep 8, 2018
