Description

The start of the climb is 5.7/8ish, first and second bolts are easy to get to, but a touch up there. The crux is at the top of the climb at the overhang, but is protected. After a big mantle at the top, you're done. The rap bolts are a good 15 feet back, bring some long slings if you plan to TR it after lead. There is chains, but you can downclimb off the back side easy enough

Location

Listed as 10a in Yoder, yes. Felt like a Coulee 10a to me as well. Dec 24, 2009
6 bolts, as usual high 1st bolt, good clipping stance though. Seems the anchors could be moved down and closer to topping out. If there are no objections to the first ascent party, the next time I go climb it, i'd move them down. Sep 25, 2016

After 3 bolts it becomes overhung, and moreso at the 6th/last bolt, but the holds are big and good, and it’s not hard to top out on the slab. Since the anchor chains are far back and you can top out, it makes for an ideal spot for a third person to walk up and help a newbie out with cleaning/rappelling or to take stellar photos. Gorgeous views. Mar 17, 2019
