Description

This route works through a system of cracks just to the left of Spanning the Gap (5.9) up to a single bolt. You then move right to the anchors of it's neighbor. I thought that it was a full value (hardish) 5.7 to the single bolt and then climbing right added enough pump to add a grade.

Good move and good protection. If it was longer I would add a star for sure.

Instead of lugging trad gear up you could just do the route to the right, swing left to clip the directional bolt and do it on TR.

Location

Just Left of Spanning the Gap (5.9).

Protection

Regular rack to hand size.
