This tricky route is the next bolted line right of Nice Jugs. It goes up the slab, turns a roof, and then continues up more slab. Those expecting the roof to be the crux will be in for a surprise when they pull onto the slab above. Look for the hard-to-see finger pocket to make the clip from and then crimp and smear through the final tenuous moves to reach easy terrain.


8 bolts, 2 bolt anchor/lower

[Hide Comment] awesome route that has a lot of variety and is definitely not your typical gorge 11a. i thought the route had three succinct and successive cruxes: getting established at the roof (looks easy, felt tricky), pulling the roof (physical but not that bad), and moving past the 2-finger pocket. cool opposition of hands and feet and a subsequent knee bar frictioning of the slab under the roof.
