Description

A really, really fun jug haul up a steepening section of the wall, with an intimidating roof near the top.

Start on a foot-wide ledge below the first bolt and head up on less-than-vertical rock using positive edges (and one pocket) through three bolts to a bit of a ledge. Continue up the now steepening, blocky section using mostly jugs (occasionally juggy sidepulls). Wonder a time or two if the jugs are going to stay attached to the wall.

Arrive under the roof, take a breath, and haul your corpus upward.

At the second bolt above the roof (the last, and tenth overall) head up and right to the chains (the chains can't be seen from the last bolt——they are over the bulging section of rock at the top that is to the right of the bolt line ).

Location

The first route west (left) past the large boulders that delimit the left of the cave area.

Has an obvious, three-foot-by-two-foot roof near the top.

Protection

10 bolts, chain anchors. Chains can't be seen from the ground.
