New route up right side of formation. Climb the challenging scoop, then up and right, over the shallow dihedral, then up the face over quality rock. Lower off of mussy hooks.


6 bolts?

Be careful getting that first bolt. Jun 1, 2017

A somewhat awkward start, but another really fun face climb at the hills.
The last move before the anchors had me pulling on a large and very hollow sounding flake - would probably be a much harder (or easier?) climb if that hold broke. May 19, 2016

Lots of balancing to start. I say 5.9 was our groups consensus. First bolt is pretty far off the deck. Oct 27, 2010
