Description

A 5.8++, this route probably feels a little harder than the grade. Starts left of center of the crag, on the left side of the gap next to Cyclic Loader. The route starts at the gap and wanders left, then straight up to the anchors. There is large pine tree behind you as you are climbing. You can start on the left side face for a 5.10c variation.

Protection

6 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.

Good moves on good quality rock. Crux is after the third bolt at the bulge with little feet but never fear--very positive hand holds await!
This climb also has some funky anchor setup with two cold shuts but one is placed much higher than the other. Needs some hardware to help equalize and make it easier to clean as well as keep the existing hardware from wearing. May 15, 2007

Thanks to a hardware donation from NMCRAG, the anchors on this route were replaced in July 2007 with quality Fixe Sport Anchors. Jul 24, 2007

This is a great climb with really fun moves. The first two or three bolts are a breeze, so there's no pressure on the crux. The crux itself is not that hard provided you take your time and find the right feet. After that it's just pulling jugs on a slight overhand, and who doesn't love that? Jun 24, 2015

Fun, best to look left and right of the bolt line to keep it 5.9, but it's all there. Apr 2, 2018
