Description

This one’s a great route for the moderate leader! Start just below the top of a long, slanting rock. I’d say the crux is the first move. Head straight up through the jug-fest on vertical rock to a large belay ledge. A fun route that requires some careful shifts in balance and a few mini-stems. Rappel to descend.

Location

This is the third bolt line, counting from the climber's left.

Protection

4 bolts, ring anchors

Somewhat awkward feeling climbing on this with the best moves at the top. The 2nd bolt is positioned such that if you fall clipping you'll hit the rock at the base. Jun 29, 2009

I can't agree with the 5.8 rating on this climb. There wasn't a 5.8 climb on this wall as far as I recollect, and we did everything that was bolted. I'm not sure if we were just off route, or maybe the FA climbers were just really really stout.. If you are a 5.8 leader, be careful when considering this climb. I would put it at 5.9+ due to the reachy/crimpy/balancy moves. When compared with other 5.8's in the area, this is definitely a lot harder. Aug 29, 2011
