Ths is the [now fourth] 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

Hey, for whomever it may concern, the first bolt on this route is loose enough to unscrew with fingers....we tightened up as much as we could but didn't have a wrench. So if anyone heads out and could fix that, it would be great. Since it is the first bolt, not a huge worry but should be fixed. Mar 29, 2018
This is no longer the third but the fourth route from the left now. When you pull onto the first ledge, it's quite filthy for about 10 feet, but the rest of the route is very clean. I spent some time with a brush cleaning off (what I used as) the holds at the dirtiest spot. Will clean it up a bit more tomorrow. Very good route that is worth doing. Dirt adds a bit of fun anyway, right? Jun 27, 2018
