Description

A newer route, still some loose rock on this one. From the big split tree hop up on the rock and head right-ish up the slab past a few good huecos and some awkward moves. The route steepens considerably towards the top to a decent finish.

Location

From the entrance/chopping block area, traverse left under the roof and squeeze past the big split tree. Start right there in a small space between some rocks. The second to the right of the five routes on the face, left of Unknown.

Protection

Five or six bolts to open shuts

Update 5/5/16 [Per Alex Fletcher]: The anchor on this route has been changed. I climbed it on 05/05/2016, and there was only one bolt with a ring on it. Apparently, the old bolts were removed and the holes filled in. Working a few feet to the right allows one to use the two bolts with rings that belong to the route "unknown."
June 26, 2017. One bolt anchor. Used the bolts from the route to the right to anchor off. My son then top rope Moonshiner and clean the QD on his way up, leaving only the QD on the anchor.
I then led the route to the right (which i used to anchor Moonshiner). Climbing Moonshiner first then the route on the right made cleaning Moonshiner easy (assuming you have someone to TP Moonshiner to clean the QD).

Routes in this area is "on grade" - not like in J tree. A 5.9 is a true 5.9 (+/- one grade). Jun 26, 2017

I just climbed this on 05/05/2016 and the one hanger with a ring was still the only anchor I saw. The anchor to the right for the route 'unknown' is within a few feet to the right though. That's the one I used. May 6, 2016

Was there yesterday (1/17/16) and there is two rap rings at the top. No longer a single bolt. Jan 18, 2016

Was just there 8/5/2015 and there is still a single bolt with a rap ring. Anyone got a drill? Aug 6, 2015

We did it too- 04/15. Still has only a single bolt anchor. Makes your wonder as to the logic of whoever took the second bolt out and left it for so long with but one! Apr 14, 2015

Anyone know what's up with the anchor on this route? I was here in October 2014 and climbed it, and there was a nice 2-bolt anchor at the top that looked to be in fine shape. As of this morning (Jan. 1, 2015) there's a single bolt with a rap ring, and the holes where the previous bolts were are plugged with epoxy. I moved right onto the anchor for...whatever the next line right is, but that made for some interesting cleaning on rappel afterwards. Jan 2, 2015

My first outdoor lead. Good everything to last bolt, then a less-than-solid move to the right, then a big mantle on to the tiny shelf that is the end of the route. Sep 19, 2011
