Description

An area classic. Fairly steep all the way to the top, but short enough not to have to worry about pumping out. Fun pockets all the way up. With large holds every few feet.

Location

4th large formation on your left as you walk up the draw. Very obvious scoop in the rock filled with pockets. Since it is an area classic it is fairly well coated in chalk, no need to bring your own unless it is hot.

Protection

5 bolts to Mussy Hooks. The first bolt is fairly high, so treat it as a boulder problem with good holds for the clip and positive feet.

An undercut start gives way to a sea of pockets, most of which are good, then a slight runout to a stance beneath the finishing bulge. The top section can be done by going out left on a giant flake system which is easier, but has a potential swinging fall, or it can be done by going straight up past a three finger pocket which is harder but a much cleaner fall (recommended).

Also, the guide shows four bolts but really there's five on the route. Sep 28, 2011
