Description

A bouldery start leads past some slopers to a stance. Continue up the face past a small overhang, where the tree has fallen against the rock.

Yes, the tree is off-route. (Cheater!)

Location

Starts on the Rocket Slab, to the left of the ever-popular Afterburner(5.5).

Protection

3 bolts, anchors

I found the clipping stance for the first bolt to be decent... I definitely wouldn't bring a stick clip just for this route, but if thats your thing, it does make the route easier, and the rocks under the start less intimidating. Oct 25, 2010
felt like 10c was a little high of a rating...fun route but stick clip not a high first bolt but awkward to clip May 7, 2010
