Description

A route with an easier and harder variation. Some sharp holds and crispy rock detract from the fun.

Start at a clean, steep face just left of Paleolithic Tool Traditions aka Tool Boy. Scramble up easy ledges to the start the face. Climb up to the right, clip the third bolt, and traverse left to the arete on small holds (crux). Continue up the arete to the top.

A more difficult variation (11a) continues up the thin face right of the third bolt.

Protection

5 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.

I thought both variations were sharp but fun, the 11a being fairly sequential. Feb 3, 2007

11a version is pretty classic in my book. Hard but short. Mar 18, 2018
