Description

This great little route is a gem for the area. It is one of the more sustained lines around. Easy climbing past a couple of bolts leads to the first crux. Hard crimping or a dyno leads to a mini-jug. From the jug, do some intersting slab moves with little in the way of feet. Once you mantle up the slab, pull a rooflet on dirty rock to the anchor.

Location

This is located on the first wall from the trail, just left of the rightmost 5.9. Look for the columbine flowers:)

Protection

QDs + 2 bolt anchor.

This is not a 5.10 unless you cut out far right to the jugs on the right side of the arete, staying on route keeps this climb real. May 27, 2014
