Description [Suggest Change]

Preclip the awkwardly placed first bolt and then climb up a short right-slanting ramp to the right (5.10-) to gain a jug and the 2nd bolt. Wander up the easy slab above to finish with a short, steep headwall past two more bolts (5.10-) and shared anchors with Blurry. As an alternative it's possible to climb directly past the first bolt (5.11-).

Although horribly dirty when first established this route has cleaned up greatly and offers a few fun moves.

Location [Suggest Change]

Located on the left side of the face between Blurry and Out of Sight.

I thought the headwall was perhaps a soft 5.10b. The starting moves if climbed directly through the 1st bolt are 5.11a, but the moves that follow the obvious holds on the right are 5.10a. Jun 14, 2009

i felt the crux was a solid 5.10b, harder than any move on "out of sight", the mantle of the headwall felt sketchy. Jun 13, 2012
