Thin moves on the lower, steeper section of the wall present the primary problem. A great little knob is most helpful.

The first three bolts are tightly spaced as that is the only option for staying off the ground while doing the crux. Marginally sporty getting to the fourth.

From the fifth bolt move up and right, then straight up past three more bolts to the anchor. The rock in this sction of the face is superb.

The first bolt is a little hard to clip. There used to be a good hand edge by it, which made drilling the bolt no harder than clipping it now that the hold has mostly broken off.


Right of Shark Bait.


Bolts. Bolt anchor.

Long long way to the anchor, pant pant. Love the first head wall section. In the future (if I get good enough to do it again) I might stop at the 5th bolt to save energy for the other great climbs over here. Apr 26, 2013
