Description

If you don't want to lead this route (and I wouldn't), it can be toproped from the anchors for "Tearjerker". Begin by bushwhacking through the small forest that has erupted at the base of this route. May I recommend the "Fiutt" method of ascending the first moves--the tree has been tested to hold at least 160 pounds. Bouldery start leads to thin slab. Long runout between 3rd and 4th bolts gets the R rating. Runout is on some pretty slabby moves. Above the slab is another section of hard face climbing up a left-facing corner. Finally, some more slabby face to the anchors.

Location

Just right of "Tearjerker", this is the third bolted line on the main face. If you are surrounded by trees and bushes, you're in the right spot.

Protection

Bolts & chains. All you need are quickdraws but you might consider bringing a chainsaw, machete, or weedwhacker for the approach.
