Description

Head up the well bolted line past a fun slab section to a finger crack roof (10b). Continue up the face to the anchor/mussy hooks.

An excellent route that features varied and sustained climbing.

Location

From the toe of the slab scramble up and right to a prominent flake/block with a bush on its left. Watch rope ends on rap/lower!

Protection

14 bolts, mussy hook anchor. Watch rope ends on rap/lower!

Huge fun. The roof is a blast--pretty moderate if you're tall, but quite a bit more difficult for those short of stature. A must-do.

Warning: You definitely want a 70 meter rope! And tie a knot in the belayer's end. And have the lowered climber swing a little to climber's right. This ain't no gym. Dec 27, 2017

the top caught me by surprise, I found the face/friction moves to be more difficult than the roof. Spoiler: between the third and second to the last bolts. Very good route. Oct 11, 2015

yep, 35m not 35' - maybe someone can change the default setting on that, i didn't see an option, so it'll be 115'... Apr 21, 2014

Glad people are enjoying this one. Long draws can be useful on bolts 6 and 9 to reduce rope drag. However, I've led it with only short draws on all the bolts and it wasn't too bad. One note: the length of the route should say 35 meters, not 35 feet! Apr 3, 2014
