Description

This line liebacks, jams, and stems up the obvious open-book. A set of 1980s-vintage ring bolts near the top of the cliff suggest the line was climbed on gear back in the day, but it has recently been retro-bolted by an unknown party.

Stem and lieback up smooth black rock to an easier section passing a large, detached flake. The feet get scarce passing an orange patch, then a brief juggy bulge leads to the route's highlight, a short section of splitter finger crack. Jam up the crack to deteriorating white stone and the original anchor. Continue a few more feet over a juggy roof to a new, stainless, springer anchor.

Location

~100 yards north of the the leaning dihedral, up on a hill, is a dark slab with three lines. This is the central line.

Protection

~7 bolts, 2 bolt anchor, and a higher 2 bolt springer anchor. This could be lead on finger-hand-sized pieces.
