This is a good new (maybe last?) addition to the Upper Tier. It has varied, interesting, well-protected climbing on mostly excellent rock. This had been toproped before by someone, but I doubt it has seen a lead as this would be very bold without the bolts I added, but if I am wrong my bad and please let me know!

Start as for Welcome to Ouray, but move left immediately to brown bolt. Continue up face (1st crux) to left-trending crack and flake systems. At 2nd ledge, clip a bolt on the right on the outside of the flake, then make an awkward move to the outside (2nd crux), then follow 2 more bolts up the outside corner being careful of hollow flakes on the right to 2 bolt lowering anchor.


On the Upper Tier, this route shares the start of Welcome to Ouray but moves left immediately following brown bolts.


6 bolts, #0.75, #1, #2 Camalot, and 1 or 2 green Alien size cams will be plenty. It has a 2 bolt lowering anchor.
