Description

This is the only bolted route on the wall, so you use it to set the anchor for the other lines. You'll find the first bolt just over the lip of the cave which will protect the first hard move.

The physical start to get over the cave is the crux.

Location

This is the climb front and center of the small, short wall. It has the only bolts so you can't really climb the wrong thing.

Protection

2 or 3 bolts, then bolts with quicklinks at the top.

The crux move (which is the first proper move, getting you out of the starting cave) didn't feel like 5.9 to me! Neither me nor my friend could pull it off. Oct 23, 2016
I agree the first move feels harder than 5.9. I've done the route twice. The first time, I got the move clean, but the second time, I couldn't remember what I did and couldn't get it clean. Oct 25, 2016
