Description

This is currently the leftmost bolted line on the east face of this crag. It makes for a fun line with a pinch of spice.

Start with a lieback of sorts with a spot on somewhat crumbly rock. Clip the first bolt. Continue up to the 3rd bolt. The crux may be the reach here as those 5'5" or less may find it harder here.

Some may find this to be in the 5.9 range.

Rappel off a 2 bolt anchor.

This is rated by Paul Gagner, Rich Perch, to be a 5.9. Due to the limitations of the website, a poster can't list 2 separate ratings, so their rating is reflected in the L->R: on the area page.

Location

This is the leftmost bolted line on the east face.

Protection
