pretty much cruxless. I guess it would be turning the dogleg.


easily visible from the parking lot, this route is the obvious dogleg crack on the west end of the north face.


medium to 1 large cam.
two-bolt anchor

route length approx 70 ft after the upper leftward dogleg tops out at the big perched boulder

where exactly is the stated "two-bolt anchor" located? no topside bolted anchor in sight as of 4/20/2017, not around the perched boulder, not higher up on the sloping summit. saw gray sling around a sketchy chock rock wedged in at the top of a flared crack under the east side of the perched boulder. long webbing could be fixed around the west underside of the perched boulder for a solid rap sling anchor, for others who might want. ended up just downclimbing How About A Date, Baby?
