Description

This route is a good warm up option for the harder lines at the cliff. It is a leftward arcing seam feature interspersed with nice pockets. There are good pockets hidden in the seam in sections. The difficulty of the route arises from finding these pockets and hanging the quickdraws on hard to reach bolts. Stop at the anchor of 'one love' and lower down for some additional warm up moves on that route.

Location

This route is the leftward arcing seam feature on the left side of the cliff. Start just above a 10 foot drop off to the lower trail.

Protection

6 bolts + anchor.

[Hide Comment] A surprisingly aesthetic line that people love to hate on for whatever reason. If it was a little longer and the bolt placement made more sense it would easily be four stars. Dec 5, 2019
