A vertical face leads to a lower angled section below a slightly reachy roof move (crux), and finishes with some enjoyable face moves to the anchor.


Just left of the major break between the right and left parts of the cliff. A small pine is located just above the "roof" portion of the route.


6 bolts, sport anchor
Lower part is technical, upper part is overhanging on good holds. If the ledge in the middle wasn't there, I'd give it 4 stars.

I was told a hold broke left of the first bolt above the ledge. One could see where it used to be, and little crimp is all that remains. Without this hold, grade would be more like 5.11c. I disagree, once can just walk right on the ledge, go up, then traverse back left along the horizontal crack. I think it's more like 5.10d. Jul 6, 2011

Being 6' tall, I was able to use a reachy right hand undercling and then power straight up over the roof above the bolt with a good left hand. I'd say it went at 5.11a for me, but my moves are not possible for anyone under 5' 11''. I am told the variation to the right is quite fun, possible for everyone, and goes at 5.10c. May 10, 2012

Since the hold broke the route is even better!
Same rating, 11a. I am not giving any beta, but am not talking about the detour to the right, nor the way Cory describes. Jul 9, 2012

Steep climbing on good holds. Really enjoyed this climb. I'm 5'6 and couldn't go to the jug from the left. If I had to dyno to it, it would be more more like 11c. I went to the right and traversed left to the jugs and had no problems. Hardest part of the climb was clipping the bolt above the crux. The rest of the climbing was mellow. Its hard 5.10 or soft 5.11. I love this type of climbing and it was an easy onsight for me. Oct 7, 2013

Going straight up the bolt line is a lot of fun and definitely no harder than 11a, if the undercling/balance hold (at the bottom of the first jug rail off the ledge) feels too far away try re-positioning your feet, you'd be amazed how much farther you can stand up down there. Super fun crux. Nov 29, 2014
Great climb. Felt soft using only the rail on the roof to bump to the money ledge above the bolt (2 people after me couldn't repeat that and used an easier side crimp off left). Very fun and felt secure despite the ledge below you. Sep 11, 2016

This should be your first 5.11 if you want to break into the grade. Super fun route and well protected. Stick clip the first bolt to avoid catastrophe. May 22, 2017
