DescriptionStart up a clean panel of rock with a big ledge for hands (and eventually feet) to the first bolt. A mantel helps get your feet up on the big ledge and a stance to clip the second bolt. Tricky laybacking with a big reach lead past the second bolt to the third bolt. Sneaky, sequential climbing takes you up to the crux bulge. Pull the bulge and climb easier terrain to the anchor.
This seems to be a natural run off area and is quite dirty but if the route gets decent traffic, it'll clean up well (between storms) and is pretty fun.
