Description

Climb a nice crack with a wide section right off the ground to triple bolt anchor. Good route on good rock.

Location

This route is located on the far right side of the Private Pizza wall. It climbs a nice crack with a wide section off the ground. Probably 150-200 feet right of Unknown 5.10. Three bolt anchor is visible from below.

Protection

A 5.9 leader would probably want 2-3 sets of cams from #1 camalot size to #3 camalot size. Maybe one #4 camalot sized cam for the bottom.

[Hide Comment] Great route. 2-3 sets of #1-3 was not nearly enough though. I used 6 sets and a valley giant for the bottom. Mar 12, 2018
