Description Suggest change

This route offers a unique contrast between its lower and upper sections.
Scramble up some broken choss for ~20 feet until you can step up and clip. The technical crux comes at and above bolt 2 with stems and side-pulls leading to a somewhat difficult third clip.
After this, the route steepens and offers great movement between spaced, positive holds all the way to the top.

Have your belayer watch you closely through the crux as you end up a bit above bolt 2 with the choss ledge not far below.

Location Suggest change

This is the right-most line at the main wall at the Tall Cliffs.
Look for the line of 5 bolts in tan rock starting ~20' from the deck.

Protection Suggest change

5 bolts, chains.
