A runout start above an unforgiving landing makes getting to the first bolt an exciting proposition, but once the security of the first bolt is reached the protection is fairly good overall. Once past the crux, between bolts one and two, make a slight runout to a flake/stance and clip one last bolt that protects friction moves to the top.

The loose rock that earlier plagued this climb is gone, but it's still a heads up route (a stick clip would eliminate the runout start) with some good slab climbing.


This is currently the second bolted route from the left, which starts a short distace right of a Chiller, a prominent offwidth and just left of Bear Essence, another bolted route.


3 bolts, chain anchor
