Description

Yup the name says a lot.

In short... not recommended. I was on it on a very cold day so i might have been grumpy but the movement didn't flow and it was very dirty.

This is the bolted route on the right side of the lower cliff. Climb a tricky boulder problem to get to a hard (for 5.10) move on sharp holds. Take a rest and then continue up the slighly less challenging second half to the anchor.

Location

The right hand route on the lower left cliff.

Protection

4 bolts to sun bleached webbing anchor with fixed lower off biners. Should be replaced if you climb the route.

[Hide Comment] Sliced my finger open two years ago using a crimp that is dangerously sharp. With my new beta, it is not a bad climb except for the lichen at the top. I give it 2 stars even if it's not clean at the top. Oct 14, 2014
