Description

Climb easy ground to the first bolt then continue to a good stance on the right.... From here reach left in to some crack laybacks... This section is a little balancy but cool... You end up using the obvious left leaning off-width crack to another good rest spot before stepping back out on to the face for a few more moves to the finish...

There are lots of options for jamming and finger locking if you like that sort of thing... Not that i do... This route could have been a good trad climb... But its still a worth while sport climb...

Location

As you come up the approach trail to the cliff and scramble over the big log at the base of the cliff you are right in front of the route so look up and hook up...

Protection

6 bolts to anchor

My friend Trevor getting ready to climb.  This is a very fun route with some strenuous sections.  Luckily there are marginal rests after each hard part where you can shake out the pump.

[Hide Comment] Yeah, tricky for the grade. Not a good one to try to break into the grade. Good climb tho. Sep 8, 2013
