The route is on the far left side of the crag, starts at the base of the block. First bolt is about 15 feet up and the whole route is a bit awkward. Rap chains at the top.


Quickdraws, not a bad idea to bring some stoppers if you have them. Between the 3rd and 4th bolt is about 15 feet of runout with a perfect constriction spot for a nut. It's not necessary, the holds are all there, just a confidence booster.

Definitely run out between the 3 middle bolts, can be intimidating for newer leaders. Feels a lot harder than a 5.8 when the rock is wet; this area spends a lot of time in the shade, so it doesn't dry up quickly. Jul 1, 2013
I generally can lead mid ten comfortably. This route will make you worry if you are used to gym .8 grades. quite run out between bolts 4 and 5.

I didn't think this one was all that much easier than the 10a next to it. Definitely harder than Human Foot down the way. Jul 17, 2016

definitely possible to hit the ledge on the runnout between bolts 3 and 4. lead with confidence, and/or be smart and bring stoppers! Aug 15, 2018
