Description

This is the first route you come to when you come up the approach trail. It is a nice route with varied climbing and fun holds. From the flat starting stone, climb up on to the ledge and work your way up a shallow corner, stemming and laybacking, clipping a couple bolts to your left. Place a cam under the flake above and hike up a few easy moves on fun rounded flakes to reach a bolt protected steep section of pockets (crux), to gain a nice finger crack in a corner. Follow this up, then clip a bolt and step up to the left to get to the final corner and the anchors.

There is a TR variation that goes around the often wet crux by heading up the ramp to the right after the flake and then rejoins near the top. This may get a couple bolts in the future to make it leadable.

Location

Right as you come up the approach trail, it will be in front of you and slightly to the left

Protection

A handfull of bolts and a small rack of nuts and cams up to #2 Camalot. There is a two bolt anchor at the top. Bring a few shoulder length slings.
