Description

The mental crux of this route is getting to the first bolt. There really are no pro options before then, and its about 20' up. The climbing to it was bit technical for my comfort, and it was a strain to reach it (I'm 6'1"). A long stick clip would have been nice.

Afterward the climbing eases up considerably with a long runout (possible groundfall potential?) between decent pro placements initially.

The crux is surmounting the crack at the top. There is a bolt protecting it. It didn't really need to be there, as there was decent pro options nearby, but it was nice to have it none-the-less (pro would have potentially taken up a good hand-hold).

The crux sequence was kind of tricky to figure out. There are some non-obvious holds that really seemed to help once I found them. It was very rewarding to have done it, and earned this route a star, in my opinion.

Location

This route is the second from the far left on "The Filing Cabinet". Look for a hard-to-see bolt down low.

Protection

Mixed with bolts at the cruxes. A standard rack will get you through the remainder of the route.
