Starting atop the huge, detached boulder, climb through rather sustained, flowy, fun, endurance climbing, until you hit the top. The crux is clipping the anchors.


Starts directly on the large block at the right end of the crag. Just left of the black streak that is Blackbeard.


6 bolts to anchors.

I was actually pleasantly surprised by this route. While it definitely isn't as good as some of its neighbors, the climbing is clean, sustained and pretty fun. Clipping the anchors is a bit tricky but not unreasonable. No lowering hardware at present, just chains. Be prepared to clean it. Jun 25, 2011

You can stretch to clip from below or climb until your hands are just above them. I think the climbing is actually pretty fun. You can climb fairly distinct lines through the middle - left or right. Oct 27, 2013

I pulled off an undercling between the last bolt and the anchor on May 17, 2014. While it doesn't change the grade, it is a bummer to lose a cool hold. May 19, 2014

Fun, fairly sustained, with a .11 crux in the middle and difficult moves to clip the anchors. Aug 4, 2014

I was never really satisfied with the location of the anchor and the resulting ackward finish to this route but I never got around to doing anything about it. If someone was motivated to relocate the anchor to a less contrived location, I'd say go for it. It seems like the route could perhaps be extended by a bolt or two with the anchor up over the lip somewhere. Sep 9, 2017
