Description

This is a good one with the moves getting gradually more difficult as you go up. You also get to use a very cool "loaf" hold that looks as if it is an embedded river cobble. Another good one to get on before you work in the Spine Cave.

Location

This is the right most route of the three to the right of the Spine Cave. It shares several holds with the top of Rocket Man as it exits the cave.

Those skiddish about guano beware. Key holds below roof are covered in it... and that stuff STINKS! Dec 13, 2010

We cleaned much of the guano this past weekend. It seems there is no bats living in the cave anymore. This climb has some great movement coming out of the roof! It is an Amazing climb! A must do! Jan 20, 2015

No guano to be seen on this route. I thought the climbing was great fun! Super steep on big holds. Harder to onsight as the holds are hard to spot while climbing through the roof. Also reachy and harder, for sure, if you are short. Feb 1, 2016
