Technical edging is the definition of this route, follow the bolts straight up starting to the right of the offwidth's start. Crux is going through the 3-4bolts and slightly insecure topout. Well protected though in the bolted section.


Route starts down and right of the bolt that is to the right of the Offwidth start, and about 15' up. Rap down when at the top.


There are 5 bolts, 1 at the start of the climb and the other 4 on the upper face. Bolted anchor at the top. Gear would be nice to protect the last moves over the darker colored bulge, above the first bolt. Pro would be in 0.75C4 range.

I just put in two new glue-ins so the TR situation is manageable with two shoulder length slings or a cordelette. KK Sep 4, 2015

Description is spot on. Relatively easier until about the 3rd and 4th bolts, where the 11c/d comes in. Small, insecure and somewhat sharp holds is all that keeps you on this slightly overhanging face. Topout felt a little sketch, even on top rope.

If planning on setting up a TR, bring something to extend the anchor about 7 or 8 feet from the bolts on top to minimize rope drag Sep 3, 2015
