Description

A scrappy high step starts this route which is steeper and sharper than its immediate neighbors to the right. Fairly continuous climbing leads to the crux at the third bolt. After surmounting the headwall, the climbing becomes easier climbing a scoop up to the ledge. You can either cross to the anchors for Tim's Valentine , or climb through the next face (gear) to another anchor.

Location

Two routes left of Tim's Valentine .

Protection

5 bolts, a few pieces if climbing past the second headwall to anchors.

This route has really cleaned up over the past few years. What initially was a bit flakey and sharp now has clean smears and good edges. 5 bolts with the last exiting up and right toward to the Tim's Valentine anchor as listed or up and left past a bolt and up a block to optional anchor. No additonal gear necessary, just keep going... it's up there. Nov 29, 2014

Repeated this one last week, the crux is definitely 10d. A long reach from a crimp with bad feet, some foot edges may have flaked off. Nov 23, 2016

Fun steep climbing. 10d IMO. Tough feet at the steep crux. Nov 19, 2017
