Description

Start under the overhang on the left side. The first bolt is a little run out but on easier climbing. Climb straight up to the first and second bolt. Then pull through a chimney feature near an old bird nest. After that, do a fun, 'very' exposed traverse for 20 feet to the prow. Then run it out up the ridge to the top for a chain anchor.

Location

This route is located about 100-150 feet North from where the Nautilus Cave is. The route is on the left side of a large overhang.

Protection

5 quickdraws + anchor. Use a long, extended draw for the second bolt to help reduce rope drag.
I left a draw at the third bolt. Severely pissed off wasp nest. Jun 25, 2016
In the vertical crack just above the aforementioned birds nest is now an active beehive as of May 2014. The birds' nest still looks empty. Bees didn't bother me but definitely checked me out. If you're allergic, be careful. May 27, 2014

As of May 2013, there is a large bird's nest just over the roof with shit all over some useful holds. It was unoccupied today, and the route was still climbable. May 30, 2013

This is a fun route that is easier than it first appears. Nov 15, 2012

This is an awesome route. Your heart gets pumping the first time you negotiate the traverse. No single move is too hard, but the route offers a lot in a short period. Jan 22, 2011
