This route is the farthest left route on the north (main) face. Climb the face to a large depressed area, tricky move right leads to the hueco/roof. Follow the underclings left to a large downfacing block/undercling. Go back right on to the face past a powerful, tricky crux to the anchors. This was the first sport route established on this formation and a area classic.


6 bolts, chain anchors.

The traversing moves on this route are technical and exposed. Even though the Southern California Sport climbing guide book (Troy Mayer) does not give this route any stars, it is outstanding! This route is not to be missed! Will do this route again! Mar 12, 2012
Also Socal guidebook doesnt show any stars on it but I think it's at least 3 stars if not 4. Just needs to be climbed more to clean up some of the choss. Definitely the best route on this wall May 9, 2011
Climbed this for the first time and that pinch/gaston at the third bolt was a little sketchy. I clipped and was resting on it a bit and heard a crack. It still seemed solid but it would suck to be clipping with that thing in your hand and have it come'd be a decker for sure...just grab the higher part of it and you're good to go. Awesome route!!!

Fantastic moves, rock quality and position on this route - perhaps the best route of it's grade at NJC. Nice to see it upgraded, as it seemed a bit stiff for the original 5.10d rating. Feb 2, 2007
