Description

Very fun route once you get past the first bolt. Below that it's more like a dirty 5.5. Bolts are spaced out but it's easy climbing in those areas. Crux seems to be after the last bolt to the top out. That's right, there's no anchor on this climb. There are some huge flakes up top that make a great anchor though.

Location

The southern end of the crag. About five minutes past the Anonymous Flake.

The crux is definitely after the last bolt before the top out. Trust the small holds and commit. There's a new looking set of rap rings that work for both Prajapati and Rather Be Skateboarding. They are on the trail side of the ledge, so you'll definitely need to extend it if you're going to top rope or belay from the top. Jun 4, 2017
