Description

Start on the upper ledge and climb the right side of the light brown section. Wander through the first three bolts, then up and right on smears, small edges, pockets and side clings. After gaining the arĂȘte, follow this up to the left, to chain anchors shared with Velcro. Take a couple runners for the first two bolts to reduce rope drag. Not as exciting as its neighbor to the left, and noticeably easier. Rappel to descend.

Location

On the short slab to the left of the main wall.

Protection

6 bolts, bolted chain anchor

take long runners. Also the anchors are a bit loose with a padlock attaching the chains to the hangers. Super fun climb tho! May 10, 2015

Second bolt is way off to left and kind of crux to clip.
Good to place sling there. No drag with that.
Good route, felt a bit harder than Velcro to me. Mar 17, 2014
A good climb, mentally challenging. Well protected and dependent on technique and footwork, making for a fun lead. Mar 4, 2013
