Description

Mostly 5.9 climbing with a technical crux near the top.Start just right of the steep roofs and follow low angle fractured and pocketed rock past two bolts for about sixty feet.Then step right and gain a smooth corner with a fixed pin. This route was originally led without bolts but the two bolts have now been added to the start. Still a trad route and well worth the effort.

Location

This is the first route to the right of the steep bolted routes, about ten feet right of Solar Gain.
