Description

This has fun climbing along an intermittent crack-seam, with positive face holds. We thought the lower crux was as hard as the upper boulder problem, and the route seemed about 5.10d overall (staying out of the upper crack). You can place a bomber small wire at the start if the traverse to the first bolt spooks you.

Protection

12 QDs, #3 or 4 nut for start.

Huh, that's funny. I placed the nut before the first bolt and remember saying WOW that is a bomber, textbook, nut placement. Not totally necessary if you climb the grade, but I warmed up on this, so I placed it as it's not simple for the first move of the day. The bolt is close enough to easily stick clip if you don't have the nut and are not feeling it. Great route for starting of the day!!! Jul 5, 2017

There is no traverse to the first bolt, and I have no clue where you could place a nut before the first bolt. A line of edges starts right below the bolt. Very fun line. 12 bolts and anchors. Jun 19, 2017
Stellar little climb! Really interesting movement, awesome rock, and well bolted. I'd say 5.10c sounds about right. All the lines at this crag seemed a little soft but are all more than worth doing. Great job on the lines, y'all! Oct 12, 2015

Solid climbing with a tricky twin crack in the middle. Enjoyable warm up for Protege! Jun 15, 2011
