Description

To start, chimney your way up an easy but somewhat dirty slot to a big ledge and high first bolt. To avoid this initial obstacle, it's easy to walk around the left side of the slot and rejoin the route at the first bolt. Belayers beware that this ledge is full of choss; it's best to wear a helmet and stand clear of the fall line.

Past the ledge, climb steep, fairly good rock following the bolt line and doing an ascending traverse left toward the anchor. You may find clipping the 5th bolt strenuous.

Location

This is the southernmost climb at The Gym and the first you hit after rounding Spiney Ridge. Look for an easy, somewhat dirty chimney leading to the steep south face of a prominent spire.

Protection

6 bolts, 2 bolt anchor. The anchor bolts are old and a bit loose but appeared reasonably safe. I screwed them in finger tight.
