Description

Apparently the name (with proper pronounciation) might be a spin-off of a classic Yosemite pitch on the Rostrum...

Interesting climbing past some cool polish takes you past 5 bolts to a shallow left facing corner where an optional small cam could be placed. Either clip the intermediate chains and call it a 5.10, or crank out a cruxy move clearing the overhang to some crimps and a tricky clip. (I believe this may have been an abandoned route from years ago and the bolts only were replaced?) From the ground, this upper part looks super run out but it's really not bad at all and the bolts protect the hard moves and in between it is way easier. Another optional cam may be placed before clipping the last bolt. Finish with some cool and funky moves up a shallow layback and then up to the anchor.

Location

Leftmost route on the cliff.

Protection

7 protection bolts, intermediate and upper anchor.
