Description

Begin at the right end of the wall on slabby territory with positive holds until you encounter the beautiful orange rock above. Make a couple of moves to a small letterbox slot, then crank consistent sustained moves on the gently overhanging headwall. This route is quite pumpy and might feel a letter sandbagged. It would also go on solid gear if you felt so inclined - good horizontals throughout with solid placements.

Location

route at the top of the trail to the left of the large angling tree and chimney crack.

Protection

6 bolts, or gear if you prefer, bolted anchor

Super pumpy, fun variation in style and gets more and more fun as you climb. May 31, 2016

I was super pumped at the top and almost gave up but I didn't. This climb is totally worth it. Not to mention there are some sweet climbs in the rest of the area. Oct 30, 2014
