Description

This outstanding moderate climbs a nice, sculpted gray slab on beautiful sinker pockets. Despite the slabby angle, this is a great beginner outing or a perfect warmup. There are a few long moves here and there, but intermediate edges allow passage for the height-impaired.

A few easy moves gain a horizontal break below a bulge. Make sequential moves between great pockets to the crux above the fourth bolt: a long reach to a not-so-great 2-finger pocket. More juggy pockets above lead to a left-facing flake and the anchor.

Location

In the center of the gray slab, climbing up to an obvious hole.

Protection

~5 Bolts to 2 BA.
