Description

Pull easy 5.7 moves to the first bolt (cam optional), clip the first bolt and then fire the lower crux. Make sure your belayer is on it when leading from the 1st to the 2nd bolt as there is a ledge below. Once you fire the lower moves right around the 1st bolt, moving to the 2nd bolt is not bad. After the 2nd, continue on easier but slightly run-out terrain to a horizontal crack. Many climbers go right at the last bolt to stand on a ledge, but avoid it as it's off route and you might have trouble getting back on route. The crux is the last 10' of the route and involves a fun backstep on a killer crack. Most belayers clip into the chains on the ground while belaying.

Protection

Mixed. Five bolts. Bring a few pieces up to a #.75 Camalot. If you're confident at the grade it can be done solely on bolts and most climbers do not place gear on the route.

Partner took a huge whip on lead going for the fourth bolt. If he'd had any slack in his hand or if he'd been any higher, he would have hit the ledge. If you're not confident climbing at this grade, bring gear to protect between 3rd and 4th bolt. Mar 11, 2015

I really enjoy the top of this route. I agree there is a really hard section that could use better protection down lower. Dec 15, 2015
