Access Issue: Warning! Stainless steel bolts are suspect near the coast! Details


Climb to a high first bolt, then up the groove through the middle of the buttress. Stem back and forth through cool features to an awkward sidestep to the right at the top. There is an anchor here, but the climbing gets even better above. Pull through some overhanging moves on delicate stalactites until you can reach the bigger stalactite behind you. Climb this to the cave above and lower from a thread anchor.

There is a second pitch that goes at 7a that is protected by titanium bolts.
