Description

This short route has one committing hard sequence just after the second bolt, launching into tricky bulge moves from an undercling. After this, a much easier challenge gets you to the anchors. I've heard some climbers hate this route (and would probably give it a bomb). For myself, I think a one star minus or 1/2 star is fitting as I liked the challenge of the one hard sequence.

Location

Starts upslope from the second platform/landing on the trail up Shipwreck, just above the start for Purple Aces.

Protection

Bolts (aprox. 4) and Rap Anchors.

Odd that this is so bad, I thought it looked like a lot of fun. Thanks for the heads up. Feb 21, 2010

This thing isn't bad. It's just so short that it's hard to call it good. fun moves but it really is just a bolted boulder problem. Worth a burn at least once for sure. Mar 21, 2013
