Description

The S-most route on the E wall of the Pit. This route ascends a short overhang on killer pockets to a good ledge. A final 10 foot section on small, sharp pockets and crimps leads to the chains. One of the few White Rock routes with morning shade.

Location

The 2nd route approached on the left side of the Pit.

Protection

3 bolts to 2 BA. May want to stick clip 1st bolt.

It's worth noting that I've been told that this route was ascended as a solo/highball before I bolted it. I didn't know that at the time, but I still think it's a fun route and better as a sport climb than a solo.

So I guess what I'm trying to say is that the FA was probably solo by one or another of the Butler/Laeser/Torres trio when they were in high school. Jan 2, 2009

I think this climb--if you stay on the face at the top--is just as challenging as Gralisa Leen. You can ease the grade quite a bit if you grab around the edge to the right. Fun climb overall, bouldery start. Jul 2, 2007
