[Hide Comment] Great route. Probably the best at the cliff as far as climbing and rock quality. I think 11c is a bit generous as a grade. Felt easier than Studebaker to me. The start is definitely pretty heads-up, do not blow the second clip.... I'd stickclip it if I had one with me. Had to severely tighten the nut on the first bolt today. If there was a fall on it, it would have likely been a groundfall. Aug 8, 2015

[Hide Comment] Fantastic, varied climb. Interesting crux in the middle.

I could not find the anchors for this route. I more or less topped out before I gave up looking and traversed over the the Brown and Gold anchors, which are about 10 feet to the right. You can set up a toprope or have a follower from these anchors.

You can cut way right at the final bolt to avoid having to downclimb. Jul 7, 2019

[Hide Comment] No anchors. Clip the last bolt, traverse up and right on jugs, clip the last bolt on the 12, and continue to the Brown and Gold’s anchors. It doesn’t add any difficulty and is a quality finish. Aug 27, 2019
