Description

Some steep pulling leads to a good rest. You can then move right to join DOF (easier) or move back left (harder) and pass a few more bolts. Finish straight up to an out-of-sight two bolt anchor shared with DOF.

Agree but the chains should be replaced. Very rusty. Feb 5, 2016

The direct bolt line is much harder than heading right. Quarter pad crimps vs full pad jugs. Solid 11c... Good thing the crux is really short and spits you out on jugs.
Don't give in to the accepted idiotic practice of lowering from the quicklink on the last bolt. The last bit to the top may have been chossy for a few years after the route was put up but it's now clean and solid. Fire up the last bulge, pull the mantle and lower off the chains, standard draws will provide enough extension to put the rope over the lip. Feb 24, 2014

Steeper than you think with the draws swinging in space. Big holds lead to crimps then to big holds. After that work the crux with thin movement and careful feet to some better left hand holds higher. After that it's a jugfest. I did not encounter any nettle on this route. Sep 3, 2012

The direct bolt line is not that much harder than heading right. The rock above the last "rap" bolt isn't *that* chossy. There is a nice set of chains w/ biners just out of site above the lip. Aug 10, 2012

quality. start on the tree and follow great edges up to the top. Agree 11c sound good. same anchor situation as Depth. one bomber bolt with a biner that allows for rappelling there vs continuing up chossy rock to true anchor. Apr 19, 2012

IMO, direct is 11c/d, escape is 11b; both very worthwhile. Sep 4, 2011
