Start right of large boulder, follow a black streak, climb up a featured face to a bulge, then make some slab moves to steep upper headwall crux. The guide says do a big toss to a big jug, (more like a dead point to a pocket) but the lower part of the hold is sloper. There is a pocket above it.


11 bolts.

FWIW, you don't have to dyno. This is not a boy climb. Footwork really makes it not strenuous. Sunglasses are not recommended. May 29, 2013

Found the pockets, but not the "big jugs". Insert TWSS comment here. This route re-sparked my enthusiasm for climbing! Friend that led, a seasoned climber, ran out of steam at the crux and broke a hold off around the second bolt.

(I agree with Leo, footwork is key. Enjoy the features, no need to dyno through them.) Jul 14, 2013

Another vote for no dyno needed, not even a deadpoint. Work on getting your feet high while you have your hands on a jug. I'm 5'7" with 0+ ape index, and I was able to reach the pocket statically with room to spare. Oct 12, 2015

Wonderful climb! There are three distinct sections. I was very surprised after manteling up above the initial face that's clearly visible from the ground to find 3 bolts on a slab topped with a jug headwall. The climb begins with interesting rock and great edges, then I grabbed a monster jug out left and stood up to the slab. The slab is thought-provoking and climbs for just enough to get into the groove before the headwall arrives. The top headwall offers a variety of jugs with the climbing getting slightly less obvious to gain the anchor. My only advice for the onsight up top is to dig deep. Also be aware that when I climbed it the third bolt was a slight spinner. It looked solid to my untrained eye, and it is not in a particularly difficult section. Jun 10, 2016

It's got everything you love or hate. As others said, work your feet up at the end before going for that left bucket. Jul 3, 2016

IMHO, this is the best 5.10 here. Sep 18, 2017
