The rightmost climb, up the pillary feature to a small overhang...the cruiser. Good holds.


A 6 bolts to bolted anchor.

Fun climb. One very definite crux move below the juggy lip. Can be nerfed by starting on the pillar up to the right. Jun 12, 2012

Stick clip or use pillar to right. Bottom start is more interesting. Good moves in crux then it eases up with ledges for feet. An enjoyable climb. Jun 19, 2014

5.8 in the guide but solid 5.9, means it catches many unwary leaders out. Meat of the climb is in the first half. Sep 25, 2016

This one must have had a bolt added down low. I didn't see any need for a stick clip as the first bolt was only a few easy moves off the deck. The crux was intimidating as I was expecting a 5.8 climb as an easy warm up. It definitely has a 5.9 feel and the first half of the climb up and over the mini bulge is pretty fun. After that it's big ledges to a ramp. Jul 24, 2017

lol-!! book had it as a 5.8 - definitely not a 5.8 and super committing moves but glad I did it. the spice is at the bulge - but honestly the bolts are all at the right place and so are the jugs that will get you to the chains- who ever bolted this is a master. Sep 8, 2018
