Description

A thin and devious route that is probably a bit of a sandbag at 5.10d. Start left of the obvious chimney on the left side of the wall. There are two routes on this wall- this is the leftmost route. Follow the bolts up and left through a roof, clip a bolt and then make the run (20') to the anchors.

Location

Leftmost route on the wall, open shut/clip in anchor.

Protection

7 bolts

[Hide Comment] I totally agree with Wilder. The roof can be done a few ways the obvious line straight up felt really hard at 10c (book rating) even 10d. Dec 29, 2013

[Hide Comment] Both my partner (5'2") and I (5'4") backed off this route (and we were climbing at and beyond this grade at the time). It just seemed harder and scarier than we expected. Oct 23, 2017
