This is an hidden classic! The first bolt is 30ft off the deck, but you can fiddle a medium hex at 20ft. Follow fun patina plate climbing to a crux roof. You get cool exposure as you climb patina edges along a leaning arete.

5 bolts to chain anchors, optional medium hex

Hex? Bomber .75 or #1 halfway up to the first bolt in patina cracks.
Unless you like cowbells. Steep for 10a and quite exposed, great line. The edges on top are the biggest yet skinniest patina I've yarded on at the City. Sep 26, 2011

The climbing is pretty straightforward to the high first bolt. If you are comfortable with heights and a confident climber, it should not be a problem. If concerned, there are plenty of places low to plug some gear. Jul 23, 2012

If you have gear, it is neither 'R' nor PG. Jun 20, 2016

I don't recommend stick clipping after scrambling up 15-20 ft, but it can be done, and made me feel better about the high first bolt (30 ft off the deck).

Scramble up to the easy-to-sit-in half-pipe and head left to the first bolt. Staying left of the bolt line is more fun and challenging, especially at the overhanging roof near the end. Good protection (with exception of the 1st bolt).

I thought Lego was more rewarding, but this is worth doing. Jun 18, 2018
