There is no clearly defined crux. The climb starts with about 30 feet of traditionally protected 5.8 crack climbing until the first bolt, where the natural protection ends and the climb continues through 12 bolts and excellent face climbing on great features until the anchors. The anchors are ring anchors and are good for rapping.


The middle of the cliff has a large arete/nose/roof. To the left is a face, this is where the climb is. Look for the bolts around here, and you will find the climb easily.


Small cams. #0.5-#2 Camalots. I think I placed 3 pieces.
