Some easy climbing left of the first bolts takes you to an overhang. A reachy pull and high step will get you onto the easy slab, which gets steeper and thinner towards the top. Shorter climbers will have a hard time a the crux bulge. It might be possible to skirt it by going WAY right and then back left to the bolt line.


Follow the ledge system right from Drilling Fields to a belay bolt. The route climbs up and right from here.


Lots of bolts, take at least 10 draws.

The grade varies from 10a to impossible depending on height and sun. If you're 5'5" and do it in the sun, well, you probably won't do it. The only hard move is easily aided if you want to enjoy the awesome face above. Sep 26, 2016
