Description

Fun, balancy moves on crimps and otherwise positive but small holds up a slightly slabby face.

Location

On the left side of Blackstone, it is the last route that appears to start from the ground. There are a few more routes to the left.

Protection

7 bolts plus chains at the top. Need 60 meter rope.

Only 7 bolts plus anchor, not 9 (the 2003 edition of the guidebook says 9) Aug 10, 2014

Lots of fun, great warm up route. As shown in the link above, this route is actually the *2nd* route from the left side now. The end is a bit tricky, but just go for it and you'll find the holds are quite sufficient :) Jul 1, 2013

Fun and fairly consistent. It gets slightly harder toward the top but with excellent rests and no definitive crux's on the route this is a great way to break into the 5.10 grade. Jul 9, 2012

supposedly 8 and 7 (r>l), but I felt like it was a little run out and uninspiring on the 8 Jul 30, 2009
