Description [Suggest Change]

This is a trad-protected route that has a diverse set of holds (flakes, pockets, edges, etc.). There didn't really seem to be a well-defined crux. Some poor quality rock at the top detracts from the overall aesthetics of the route. Otherwise, this is a stellar line.

Location [Suggest Change]

This route is located to the right of another trad line with a wide fingers start leading to a chimney. Both of these trad lines are located to the right of "U2RNXS" on the tall, free-standing formation that is closest to the pullout for the Rock Garden.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Wired stoppers and cams to 2.5".

There is an anchor at the top consisting of two bolts that are nearly in-line with each other vertically but offset by an appropriate amount. The bolts each have welded cold-shuts that are linked by a section of chain which seems to offer only a single link to thread a rope through. I threaded both cold-shuts and lowered off with no problems.
