Description

The hardest technical climbing here. The first bolt was pre-clipped on the first accent. The climbing is sustained and continuous with a crux passing the fourth and fifth bolts. Start from the beach staying right of the wide crack follow the line of bolts with a detour right around the final bulge.

Location

This route is located at the end of the narrow beach.

Protection

8 bolts.

Climbing through the first three bolts was a bit dirty and loose. Maybe with some more traffic it will clean up well. Peter came off when good-sized jug broke around the third bolt, he was on top rope. Luckily it held me a few minutes earlier as I was probably clipping from it. I pulled off one small crimp while on lead, and it appeared that a couple of key holds in the crux have come off recently making the crux harder than it might have been a few months ago. I would be curious as to what other people think. My first fall came about three feet under the anchors when I tried to go straight up and over the roof rather than around to the right. I think I would give it another star once all the loose stuff comes off, and by that time it might be a 5.12. Despite that, it is a really cool fun spot to climb. I will return to do the last couple routes that I didn't get on. Aug 7, 2012
