Description [Suggest Change]

This is not mine, but it is an interesting route with 2 cruxes.

The 1st bolt is hidden in a dish about 10' up, just left of that tree (not the best place; it may actually be for Easy Out). I didn't use it, since I started a few feet to the left, angling slightly toward the big ledge with obvious bolts in the headwall. Surmount this and get to the bulgy crux (where I executed a Beached Whale maneuver). I believe the original line went over the bulge using the crack 4' left, but the new bolts go straight up to the anchor.

Pretty nifty!

Location [Suggest Change]

This is near the center of the wall, just left of Easy Out (a right-tending diagonal seam covered by a tree leaning against face). You can see a bolt in a face 20+ feet up.

Protection [Suggest Change]

6 or 7 bolts to double chain anchors.

The route is fun, a little dicey at the crux bulge and above. If you use the crack to the left of the bulge, there is potential for a nasty fall. Sep 3, 2017
