Description

Start behind a tree, ascending on good edges to the first bolt. Trend a bit left to the second bolt, and then enter a vertical to slightly-overhanging bit with tricky-to-find holds (there are pockets and edges; some easier to use than others).

After clipping the third bolt the angle eases a bit, but slopey holds make getting onto the lower-angled rock exciting.

Finally, after the lower-angled rock is a short, vertical bit that requires a bit of body positioning trickery to gain the anchors.

Location

On the right side of the wall, near the corner and behind a tree. The right of the three bolted routes.

Protection

5 bolts, hangers-and-chains anchors.

If you start to the left and stay left the entire time on all the sloppers you can make the rout significantly harder. Probably a .10a or so. Apr 15, 2014

Well protected, but watch the fall into the tree. Crux is getting from the 2nd to 3rd bolts. Slopey holds with a couple deep finger pockets and some not so obvious feet. Getting up to the chains is also a little more difficult than you'd like at the end of a route but there is a bolt two feet under the chains for comfort. Jun 28, 2012

very cold in fall. The temperature drops about ten degrees in this area because it never sees sun. There is also a constant breeze hitting it. I felt like a climbing popsicle, and it was 65 degrees outside! Nov 8, 2009

Very fun climb. I found a very dusty hold up high and tried to dust it off, but lost my holds and took a little fall. Fun and a great view up canyon at the top. The funnest on the wall. Aug 21, 2009

I agree that this is the best route on the wall. Really fun climbing. Cool undercling right below the chains. Great rock. Sep 24, 2008
Best route on the wall. Neat rails and a cool undercling up high. Sep 24, 2008
