Climb juggy patina plates to a crux past the 1st bolt on thin edges then head left around the arete and lieback your way up to a stance below the last bolt where a quick pull on good holds gains jugs which are mantled over the top to anchors.


Left side of the west face and just left of War Machine.


4 bolts, chain anchors

Great route! Stay on the face until you reach the second bolt, and then transfer over the arete and climb the inside corner to the top! some amazing jugs at the top! there are there, even though you can not see them Nov 4, 2015
One of my favorites in the Cemetery. Don't miss it. Feb 9, 2014

Real fun climb for the grade. Good holds the whole way, with only 1 or 2 power moves. Highly suggest this route. Nov 15, 2011
