Description

5.10 face climbing right of the ground and past 3 bolts leads to a good ledge (a stick clip may help for the first bolt). The real business starts here climbing off the ledge and onto the bulge. Quite sustained from 5th to 7th bolt with hardest moves occurring around the 6th. From here 5.10 terrain past a couple of more bolts to the anchors.

Location

Start 15 ft. right and slightly up the hill from the start of Roman Holiday. There is a dug out alcove in the dirt hillside which provides a flat space to belay from....this marks the start.

Protection

9 bolts with mussy hooks at anchors.

crux for me was right after 5th bolt. once you understand the sequence its still slightly powerful for 1 move. This and the route to the right are excellent. i swear an engineer built the belay ledge. May 29, 2014

Short, desperate crux! Great rock. Thanks for cleaning your routes so well Steve! Mar 16, 2014
Not sure about the rating on this one....curious what others think. Crux section is sustained and the hardest couple of moves feel about V3/4 to me. Aug 30, 2013
