Description

A good, stiff, exercise in edging on brown and gold patina. Reasonably steep and technical for it's first half, on holds that are quite sharp. The top half of the route is unprotected but is easy. This route is surprisingly good in spite of its easy top half and is challenging enough to be worth the effort.

The down side - the bolts are still 1/4", and there are only two of them. Additionally, falls on the route could be very serious given the bolt spacing and the location of the first bolt. Pending FA approval this route will be upgraded, until then it might be best to top rope it.

Once this route sees some upgrading it could conceivably merit another star.

Location

This is the center route, and starts off the obvious flake at the base of the wall.

Protection

2 bolts (1/4")
