Description

This has a chossy start, but the rock gets much better. It is worth getting on. No FA beta is available, so I've taken the liberty to give the route a name more interesting than "un-named". If anyone has FA beta, let me know.

Location

This is the first route right of Tears on the North Wall (the shady wall around the corner from The Prow).

Protection

8 bolts (welded cold shuts).

You go through some questionable rock down low off the ledge, but it felt solid. It's almost like pinching cobbles. The upper headwall is great fun though. There is a way cool move to a big ledge up there. Sep 6, 2015
