Start just right of the arete. Pull two small roofs. There is an obvious weakness to the right at the last bolt below the anchors. The direct line should prove to be worthy. Fun route, too bad it is short.


Located in a short corridor on the backside of Mud Wall or to the left of Ascension. There are two sport routes. This is the one to the left just off the arete.


4 bolts. Open shuts.


Husband led this route today and discovered both shots are loose at the top. Too bad too, looks like a fun one to climb. Mar 5, 2017
Really fun, short, warm up route. Sep 18, 2016
I saw this line on my way to "Three's company" one day and mentioned it to Johnny Arms (who had seen it before) as he was with us that morning he quickly set up a top-rope and we discovered it had some nice moves and interesting features. First ascent went to Aubry D. who got to name it - 'technically' the route's name should be "First Black in Office" as a play on the alternate name for "Windows" at Sun wall "First Black in Space".

By the next trip up Johnny had already bolted it! Aug 15, 2011
