Description

First bolt is 20+ feet from the ground, so protect the beginning with a cam, or stick clip the first bolt.

Stem the crack at the start of the route, and follow up to fun slabs under the overhang.

Location

Left of Thunderbird or big black wet streak, and right of Strike While It's Hot. Look for the bolt above a broken crack system

Protection

7 bolts. Optional cam before first bolt.

I'd recommend a #1 camalot for the cam.

This whole crag is still pretty dirty- but the climbing is pretty good. Hopefully traffic will help this place clean up! Jun 3, 2013

I enjoyed this climb, but think it's worth mentioning that reaching the 3rd bolt is pretty scary, so if you are timid, don't scare yourself leading this.
Agreed that you can use a cam for the start, as well as above for supleMental gear. Feb 21, 2014
This climb is wet a lot of the time so beware some seepage, especially towards the top. Otherwise it climbs very well and had lots of cool holds, even if they aren't obvious. Apr 22, 2018
