I cling is just left after scrambling to boardwalk ledge. Start up the large left facing corner that heads up to a roof. Clip the bolt, pull the roof and then trend right up to gear belay.


Route is located just left of venus fly trap and right of Ball and chain. Heads up left facing corner at the start of the boardwalk ledge.


singles to 2", stoppers, quickdraws, gear belay. top out and walk off to the right.

Would definitely stray away from this route.

I followed Andrew's lead up a semi-clean, confusing route. There is an old bolt placed high and left of the actual climb making it look like you should climb through the horizontal finger crack (looks really hard). After climbing down, right, and back up I nearly pulled a 400 lb flake onto myself because there are many mandatory moves on it (it shifted about 1.5 inches on me).

Andrew also commented on marginal placements and sketchy rock. Rope drag was heinous. May 25, 2017
