Boulder start (the technical crux) to a good ledge, then up and right to avoid a small dihedral. Traverse back left and up a neat flake. The final face moves (mental crux) can be approached several ways but slightly right then left allows an easier clipping of the bolt above the large ledge.

A sixty meter rope is adequate but exercise care on the lowering.


This climb is located on the extreme right of the Hole in the Wall formation. Rap the route.


Mixed Route, gear and bolts. Standard trad rack to fist sized cam (blue camalot). A larger cam may be used in the upper flake. Do not pass up gear placement opportunities. Anchors and chains at the top.

It would appear some choss is detached since the FA. One can rap from the top of the cliff, from a tree (bring extra sling or an old piece of rope), with a 60m rope (tie knots at end) and just reach the bolted anchor. Then with care one could rap the route and clean up a few loose pieces of rock. Aug 25, 2017

There are a lot of loose blocks ready to go on in the middle section. Some are quite large. I highly recommend cleaning this safely if you have the time. Aug 22, 2017
