Warning Stainless-steel bolts are suspect near the coast. A rebolting effort is underway. Details
DescriptionA surprisingly good climb for the path it takes, but somewhat awkward up top, preventing it from being a truly great climb.
Start off past the first 2 bolts for a starter crux (10c/d) and then up easy territory for a short distance on big interesting holds. Climb up and right in increasingly difficult positions to reach up and through a bulge crossing a tufa (10d), and then reach again to get up into a corner to the right of the tufa (10c/d), and then up the awkward corner to the top. Many climbers find that the last bolt ends up behind them and hard to clip while leading or following. Clip the 2 bolt anchor and lower off.
