Start up featured rock passing two bolts and a good knob tie-off to reach a slanting crack (.75 - 1" piece) before heading up and right to a fixed lost arrow piton at the base of the upper slab. Clip the pin and then pass a straight-in crack (1.5 - 2.5" piece) to reach a final bolt just before the anchors.

Fun climbing with a good variety of moves throughout it's length make this a worthwhile route if in the area.


Between Banquet and Lunch.


6 bolts, 1 FP, optional slings for tieoffs and a 2 bolt anchor/rap

This is a very fun climb, but a bit harder than 5.5. The top slab has a 5.6 move before the bolt, and climbing past the first bolt is 5.7, maybe stuff broke off. Good gear is available between the bolts. Great two bolt anchor, a recommended route. Mar 8, 2012

"This is not a sport route"

My realization trying to clip the final bolt 20 feet above an old piton. Mar 22, 2012

5.7 at the first bolt, then mostly easier, with an occasional 5.5-5.6 move above. Mar 11, 2013

this route has a few more bolts now;...added by the FA party;...so it is now a safer lead and you need no gear except quick draws...It is a 5.5 sport climb for 5.5 leaders!.....go get some.. Jul 17, 2013

Placed a .5 camalot between the second and third bolts, but I don't think it was really necessary. Bolts protect all of the harder moves. Nov 29, 2013

This route is relatively well bolted and offers fun and varied climbing. Definitely harder than 5.5, I think it is comparable to some of the 5.6s in the area, with some thin and tricky moves on the slab up high. Nov 18, 2015

I agree that the first bolt goes at 5.7ish (especially if you're around 5'2" or 5'3"). I thought it was a fun varied route with nice thin moves at the top with a bit of exposure! Nov 28, 2015

3 stars for the length and easy fun climbing. Surprisingly thin move over the first bolt for an easy route. You only need quickdraws, if in doubt?, run it out! (it's probably only 4th class if there isn't a bolt/pin). Jan 10, 2019
