Description

The start is the crux.

Location

The route is the first one encountered at the top of the trail. Look for a left angling bolt line. Rap from anchors on "Meteor Shower."

If it doesn't offend your sensibilities, stick-clipping that first bolt will give you welcome comfort for that crux bulge at the start. Mussy hooks at anchors were nice--thanks! Oct 10, 2017

Crux it the 1st bulge, followed by the 2ed bulge. Harder than Meteor Shower IMHO. Fun cruising above those initial cruxes. Feb 28, 2013

Why would someone chop the 1st bolt of a climb that has a crux near the ground? Do they think they can place pro here and now they are a badass on this insignificant little climb? Jan 2, 2013

Crux is pretty much right off the ground. Backs off big time after 3rd bolt. Mussy Hooks at anchor. Dec 18, 2011

This is the most right of these 3 newer routes first encountered on the wall. The holds are sharp. Beware of loose rock on these 3 climbs. Dec 30, 2008
