Ths is the [now third] route you come to on this steep, short wall. It has slopey and technical climbing, fixed biners for lowering at the anchor, about six clips, I don't remember exactly. Probably you'll find the route to still be a bit chossy, but all major cleaning has been completed.


6 to 8 QDs.

Pulled off a melon-sized hold, but thankfully had rope and belayer a bit upstream and out of rockfall area. Cool route - very pumpy, but still a bit dirty. Seemed mid-11 to me.... May 13, 2013

This crag doesn't seem to get a lot of action, so everything is pretty dirty. We were raining down choss the whole time. However, the route is quite fun and super well-bolted. Plus the Peaks to Plains path makes access really convenient. Note, this is NOT the leftmost bolted route. It is the third from the left (as of today). According to Kevin Capps's guidebook, the two to the left of this route are 12s. Not sure why they aren't on MP...? Jul 30, 2017
