Description

This is located left around the corner from the steep wall. Scramble up tiers of rock to a small, right-facing corner (gear) on the bulge. Follow the corner and slab past two bolts to an anchor on a ledge.

Eds. The length of the route is listed as longer, since using a 100' rope will not allow you to belay your second from the ground. It was originally entered as a 40' route.

Location

This is left of the steep section of PWW.

Protection

Gear, 2 bolts.

A decent little route, with good gear down low and two well-placed bolts in the slab above. We did a TR variation starting about 15 ft right (at the very right edge of photo posted with the route description) on some pretty rock with a 5.9 move or two. The lower half of the variation could be trad protected, but the top slab would be runout 5.6 without another bolt. May 5, 2013

This is a good route, but it only has two bolts. I thought this was adequate, but those at their limit may wish for a third bolt near the top. Sep 6, 2013

Bottom was easily protectable with gear, I thought the crux was definitely going from the first to the second bolt on the slab, both difficulty and the head game of running it out. The holds are there but are not immediately obvious. Jul 27, 2015

I did this route for the second time today. I do not think there is any run out between the first and second bolts. It is not super tightly bolted but certainly is not run out. Nov 6, 2016

A nice climb. Two nuts down low. No real runout between bolts. Don't be scared. Mar 29, 2018
