Description

This is the far right route with fixed gear on the crag.

Jam up the narrowing crack that angles to the right of the 1st bolt. Pull onto the face. Make a balancy mantle move to the second bolt. The obvious line seems to utilize a triangular, seemingly solid hold that makes one not want to put one's face in front as you load it. Be careful with that top block above the anchor. It seems to be just sitting there.

The rating I gave may reflect the left shoulder discomfort I've had of late.

Location

This is on the far right side of the crag. The topo photo unfortunately does not show the starting crack.

Protection

3 bolts, a few cams from wide hands to fingers, 2 bolt anchor.

This is a fun route, and I think the rating given here is correct. I think the crux is exiting the crack going to the face above. You can get good gear here even though the first bolt is higher. Apr 22, 2014
