Description

Big moves between jugs on overhanging rock describe this route, which climbs up the steepest part of the cliff. Start left of the tree at the base of an obvious left-leaning crack. Avoid the blocks out left, climbing directly up solid yellow and white quartzite up to and over the roof. Finish up the finger crack to the cold shut anchor (option: step right at the last bolt of Rampage). The crux is above the second bolt. A good warm up.

Protection

5 bolts if you go direct to anchor.
6 bolts if you finish to right on Rampage.

super fun route! it is one of the easier climbs here, but it pumps me out due to the over hang. so for me it's not the best warm up. there is toaster size loose block that wiggles but seem to be locked in place. Mar 25, 2017

This is really fun. The bolts are close together, and every move is there and then some other jug. The only exciting bit was realizing that larger pieces of rock were moderately mobile while going up it. Be careful leaving the first bolt, one of the triangular shaped jug rocks will move on you. Wouldn't be surprised if this fell off in the next few months. Belayers - wear a helmet! There is choss near the top! :) May 26, 2015

This was a fun route and a nice warmup. There are a couple holds that are starting to loosen and some previous climbers had used chalk to mark them with an X. Either way there are so many jugs on this route that the loose holds weren't required. Feb 4, 2013

Below the little overhang I moved left, which provided a wee bit of a "rest," then back right again to surmount the overhang. Oct 4, 2010
