Description

A crag classic. Begin up steep pockets two lines to the left of Mr. Slate. A few 5.10+ technical moves leads you to a great rest at the break below the roof. The crux at the roof (once protected by an ancient drilled pin) is both powerful and technical. After that the grade backs off a bit to the chains.

Location

The third route from the right side of the tower.

Protection

8 bolts to chains. Again, please don't toprope off the chains.

Repeated this route for a relaxing last day at the crag. Just as fun as the first O.S. Great route for the 5.11 climber. Mar 23, 2015

All bolts replaced 4-24-09 except second bolt because it was pretty new. Piton at the roof broke off inside the hole mid-shaft on second pull. Apr 25, 2009
