This route has two crux sections. The first is climbing past the 2nd and 3rd bolts. The moves are tricky and the holds not obvious. The second crux is after the 5th bolt. The easier finish moves left or move right for a harder finish.


This route is located on the Upper Ledge. It is the first area of white rock after the Streaks.


5 bolts and anchors
