No cruxes, all very easy. Heavily overrated. A fun jug haul climb though.


The longest route on the larger more sun exposed face of the Eastern Block.

There are several other routes between 5.7 and 5.9 on this face as well.


6 bolts


Fun longer climb! They may have added a bolt recently near the anchors, because there was definitely 7 bolts when I climbed it yesterday. I wouldn't exactly say there are no cruxes because there are some interesting moves when you are leading it, but it's certainly an easy top rope for any confident beginner. Sep 2, 2012

This was my first lead at exit 38. I second gregman on there being 7 bolts. Also, someone seems to have placed a bolt right above the anchor. I'm guessing someone really likes having their own clip in for a PAS? The climb is fun and exposed, with there not really being any difficult moves, just a little heady leading it. May 3, 2013

this is a fun route, however suffers from poor bolt placement, be careful and maybe use long runners. Nov 4, 2014
3rd bolt from the floor (the one that protrudes from the obvious lip) is quite a bit 'wiggly'. Also the last bolt before the chains is a TINY bit loose as well. Be safe out there. Super fun route. May 26, 2017
