Description [Suggest Change]

For some reason there are bolts on the route that has a perfect crack going up the corner system. It is unknown who put this up, but the bolts look newer than before the bolt ban....

Location [Suggest Change]

Route is two routes to the left of Dihedral #1. 4th class up the bench to where you are on a ledge. There is one move to get over the giant chockstone to another ledge (rope up). At the ledge where the corner crack starts, there is one bolt. Climb up and traverse out the roof and up the corner system until the anchors are visible. Traverse right on friable edges. One rope rap to the ground.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Quickdraws. If you want some help in between bolts, bring a single set to a #4 Camalot.

One of my personal favorites. Ton of fun, good sustained moves, and nice exposure. Few rests if any make for a short but fun route with a few bolts to boot. One bolt at the start, one bolt at the right edge of the roof, and one bolt at the top of the crack before the traverse right to the two bolt anchor. The best part in my opinion is the moves are tough yet fun but just easy enough that when you feel like you have to have a hold to make it trough there is usually one just where you need it. Worth taking the time to try! Apr 6, 2014

I don't know who put the bolts in, next to a perfect crack, but I know it dates back at least 10 years. My wife climbed it with her brother in 2004 or 2005 and I remember seeing the bolts while climbing in the area prior to 2004. Apr 7, 2014

This is a great route. Just when I thought I was done, I found the next hold. It was a ton of fun. Rauen is right the moves are tough but fun. Apr 11, 2014
