Description

Don't be fooled by the easy opening move off of a big jug...The rest of the route is sustained quarter to half-pad crimps on a slightly overhung face. A tricky top-out keeps things interesting to the very end.

Location

Starts on the largest jug on the face to the left of the Antline crack.

Protection

Pad(s) and a spotter to move the pad(s), or toprope from a pair of bolts above the Antline crack and be on the ready for a swing.

There are three other bouldering problems, not as difficult as the left side, to the right of Ant Line. Just around the corner to the right of AL is an edge about shoulder high. Mantel and pull onto this. Up and slightly left to a hole and then a pinky jam crack at the top, mantling over, is 5.10-. Going up and right to a nice big incut ledge is another 5.10-, with mantel at the top. Finally the smooth face in the blocky alcove on the right side of the rock goes by initially liebacking the left edge of the face, then dicely manteling onto the horizontal ledge and out the top, another 5.10.

I suppose they're 5.10, could be easier. They're fun though and provide good entertainment. Nov 27, 2013
