Description

A dramatic start using pockets in the face brings you to your first bolt. Continue up the blocky face to the right of the crack. Finish at anchors below the roof.

Location

On the main Balcony face, just right of an offwidth crack in a right-facing corner (Sky Hook).

Protection

7 bolts, anchors

There's no way that crux pocket is not chipped. Has it always been that way? You can see two scars on the left side of the pocket & it's very rectangular compared to the other pockets on the wall. Nov 26, 2017
Climbed this on 9-17/17 and Bolts and anchors are very rusty. Right anchor bolt and hanger are loose. It's a fantastic route but is less than safe right now. Sep 18, 2017

My fat fingers hated that pocket down low. Really fun climb though. Oct 15, 2012

If the bottom boulder problem were at Rocktown, it would be the most popular v1 in the park. Mar 13, 2012
