Just to the right of Gustnado is this similar-looking but more devious route. The crux small roof/bulge is obvious.
Climb fun features to the third clip at the small roof. Punch up on small, potentially flaky holds with hard to find feet through the crux and to the fourth bolt. Shorter climbers will likely find this rather difficult for the grade.
Continuous and engaging 5.10 climbing past the final, well-spaced bolts leads to the anchor.


Just right of Gustnado


Six bolts to a two-bolt chain anchor.

[Hide Comment] Brief crux through the middle bulge that shorter climbers can crimp through without it being too reachy. The rest of the route is a fun, low to mid 10. Mar 27, 2016
