Description

A tricky start off the ground or easier if started from the rock to the right. Climb up easy ledges to a committing crux near the top.

A steady 5.7 climb sandwiched by two legit 5.9 cruxes, one at the bottom (from the ground) and one at the anchors. The ground start is particularly vulnerable to a sketchy PG13+ landing (more than a pad can cover), especially on lead without a stick-clipped first bolt, so people seem to skip it and come at it from the right instead. The hardest stretch is that portion coming up the face from the ground to the first clip, so it's probably a 5.9- (mostly 5.7ish climbing) without it.

Location

#10 on topo

Protection

3 bolts, double ring anchors.

Fun route. I didn't find the bottom to be particularly daunting; the holds are all good. Crux is definitely at the top and well protected. Oct 13, 2013

I found the crux to be at the top and it is very well protected. Definitely a fun, easy route, with a couple hard moves on sloppers near the top. A ground fall before the first clip would be problematic. We started on the left and it was 5.7ish. Dec 12, 2015
