Description

This route starts off the left side of a boulder/ledge at the base of the wall, and climbs the nice face between "Jugular Vein" and "Do or Dike".
The first lead went straight up to the second bolt. Now it is led to the left.
A line of holds goes up excellent grey rock to a fairly new looking bolt. Move up and right to another bolt. Steep climbing up freckled rock passes two more bolts. The crux is after the last bolt.

There is a two bolt anchor on top.

There is a mystery bolt in the middle of three hairline dikes, down and left of the start.

One-move thin crux leads to long and steep 5.10 jug haul.

It's a little exposed getting to the anchors if TR-ing - I wouldn't recommend leading it on those rusty Leeper hangers. Jan 23, 2013

All bolts are shiny and new now. I'd say the low crux -- just above the 1st bolt -- is probably only 10b. Then it's 5.8 - 5.9 for a ways, gradually becoming 10a again. Then the high crux is above the last bolt -- and definitely 10d - 11a. I went about 4 ft to the R of the bolt, but on TR another in my party succeeded in going about 4 ft L of this bolt. It's a choice between crimps and friction. Great fun -- do this route!! Dec 2, 2017

TR'd this again the other day, going straight between the 4th bolt and anchor. Not more than 11a by Jtree standards. Good route! Apr 29, 2019

I think the mystery bolt mentioned in the description above (and shown in a pic) would be for a direct start to Jugular Vein. May 12, 2019
