DescriptionThis route includes 6 bolts to a chain anchor. The crux is definitely at the fourth bolt, as you pass from the "joint" of the bottom rock onto the slab of the upper rock. This crux is very well protected by the fourth bolt. After the crux, you will traverse to the left across a slabby section with good feet and hands, clipping 2 more bolts. Rap from the fixed anchor.
This route is identified as the tallest formation on the right as you enter The Courtyard area.
Note: I would not recommend cleaning this route on rappel. The rappel will take you straight down (approximately 30 feet) to a lower rock. Walk to your right on this rock, and then continue the rappel down the chimney crack to the start of the climb.
