Description

This is a pleasant, unprotected steep face on solid, knobby holds. It's really more of a boulder problem than a roped climb. The hard moves are in the first 15' - 20', with a good landing below.

Location

Just around to the right from the inside corner of Diagnostics.

Protection

none

This route is pretty fun but I dont feel that there is a 5.8 move on it. The bottom is slab but good. There used to be bolts on this route as evidenced by the remains. A well placed toprope can be used for this and Diabetics if you want. Sep 8, 2011

Starting on LEFT side bulge felt more like a stiff 5.9 to me. (of course, I'd torn up my ankle the day before so my appraisal might be suspect.) fun moves at bottom, nonetheless for the next 20' at least. Mar 24, 2017
