Description

You'll find this route just left of a large pine tree and a short ways left of Trolling for Tuna.

Moderate and highly enjoyable moves (5.9) up big edges, huecos and jugs lead up the featured face to the last bolt where you suddenly encounter the crux - a thin, viciously sharp edge you must crimp to get past this section. While tempting to give this a bomb, it's the lower moves that really make (and redeem) this route - so it get's a single star.

4 bolts, chain anchors

That crimp might've gotten softer because I thought the crux was not too hard and kinda fun, and the crimp none too sharp. +1 for sweet moves leading up to it. Dec 8, 2014
