Description

A cool start leads up to a bouldery crux between the 1st and 2nd bolt. Face climb up through a few right facing hand holds. Finish up on better holds to the anchors above.

Location

Second bolted line from the left on the main cliff. This will appear to be the middle line on the left side ledge.

Protection

3 bolts to LO

Finger crack to the right? Huh? The way Ian and I did the climb, nearly every hold we used was to the left of the bolt line. We used a right-hand sidepull, got the right foot way high, then shot the left hand up and left to a marginal hold in a horizontal crack. Way hard for a 10a, if you ask me. Jun 25, 2017

I found that the key to success on this one was all about getting to a really good hold out right about half way up... if you like fingercracks you will like this hold.... Its a perfect lock...

I liked this route a lot, it was very wet when i climbed it so i'd love to get on it when it was dry now that i know the moves... Jun 28, 2010
