Description

A tough, strenuous start followed by a bit of tricky side-pulling wizardry, and finally casual cruising on lovely edges to the chains.

Start up the ever-steeping base straddling the wide-but-narrowing seam and clip the first bolt from a fun position with a jug. Find a way to get up and into position for the second bolt, and then figure out the crux.

Still a bit of strenuous climbing to go: get above the crux section and then break right onto the beautiful, large reddish-brown plate. A bit of spider crawling up and then head a bit left and cruise to the chains.

Location

On the east side of Building Blocks, starts up a wide seam found behind a sickly juniper (the only juniper around the base) and the follows a shallow, rounded, left-facing flake edge. Above the seam is a reddish-brown plate with rectangular sections.

Protection

9 bolts, chain anchors.
