Description

Another excellent route for neophyte leaders, with a thin and reachy section down low that's a little harder than the grade. Follow the face just left of an arete up to the top.

Location

Rocket Slab area; starts just right of Afterburner and left of the arete.

Protection

3 bolts, bolted anchors.

Going straight up the bolt line is a major sand bag at 5.7. Super polished makes for terrible smearing. May 8, 2016

Went left of the bolts to keep it 5.7; good warmup. Going straight up the bolts is harder than a 7 IMO. Oct 20, 2013

climbing the route proper seemed a little sandbagged at 5.7, but if you trend left at crux and reach for the bolts it feels no different than gravity boots next to it. Dec 13, 2011

I climbed this yesterday and had a pretty good time on it. It's a really simple climb but has a nice crux that takes a little thought when climbing. Good warm up for the 5.11s to the right of the area! Jul 4, 2010

Nice intro into slab climbing. A hold missing between 2nd & 3rd bolt makes for an interesting crux. Worth the climb. Oct 30, 2008
