Description

A couple of sections will get your attention on this sustained route. Edging skills will serve you well.

Location

Second route right of a crack/weakness. First bolt is pretty close to the ground.

Very wandering route. Typically had to stay right of the bolts to stay on grade. Keeping track of your footwork is especially important on this thin stuff. Easy lead and fun route (aside from the chaos)! Nov 18, 2013
*Belayer: Wear Helmet!* Andrew broke a hold just below the anchors (had just clipped in) and narrowly avoided what would have been a big fall. I cleaned as much of the large plate he broke as I could, taking several pounds of rock off from just below the right anchor bolt. There is still a bit left that I couldn't get off with my little nut tool leaving a small side pull. It's a tempting hold, but try to avoid it! Clean it off if you can! Route seems to wander a lot to stay on grade. This would be a very challenging lead for someone just getting into the 5.9 grade. Very fun footwork in sections on tiny edges. Nov 17, 2013
