Some scrambling up loose blocks leads to a forced boulder problem halfway. Finishes with a short steep hand crack.


Left-most route on the west side of Goat's Head Soup.


5 bolts, optional 2-3" cam, 2 bolt chain anchor.

Fun route, the crux is true 10b and the holds are solid as they haven't changed in the 5 years I have been climbing it. A #2 bd fits great at the top. Aug 31, 2013

Definitely bring a #2 for the top. The crack is casual in the dihedral and you could skip gear if you feel good about it, but a fall without it will certainly land your feet into one of a few ramp/ledges/shelves and not be pretty. Aug 27, 2016
The "forced boulder problem halfway" is super fun, a bit of a one move wonder climb. Jun 16, 2018
