Start by stemming off a boulder (easier) or climbing directly from the ground (harder), and then climb easy face (0.4" cam here) to a ledge system below a smooth section of slab. The upper slab involves delicate moves between the bolts, and while well protected is still somewhat exciting.

Much better than it looks, this is an enjoyable slab route despite the lackluster start.


Just right of Cruise Control and a short distance left of Benevolent Bruin which is identified by a bolt about 15 feet off the ground.


4 bolts, 0.4" cam, chain anchor
