Description [Suggest Change]
I probably would have liked it better if I was good at this sort of climbing, but I am not. This is the bolted line of eyebrows and edges just right of the Original Route on Observatory. I spent most of the time on it just hoping I would not slip off the nearly invisible holds! The crux is moving up off of holds that you feel you are perilously clinging to with friction, going to even smaller holds.
Location [Suggest Change]
This route is on the right side of the main wall (left half) of the crag and just right of Original Route it follows a line of bolts up the right side of a smooth slab to a tree with a belay/rap station.
Protection [Suggest Change]
6 good bolts on a slab, not always overhead. Small cams or nuts protect a few tricky moves to get onto it.
