Mostly moderate climbing to a crux reaching the last bolt and then getting established on the flake.


Climbs the center of the pillar.


6 bolts

Pretty light for a 5.11a, but, the traverse crux is 11a. If you climb the bolt line you will go into a logical crux sequence through the top 2 bolts - it's strict and there isn't any "bail" you could pretend is on route. The 11a variation is hard to read, and you could argue it's a bail, if you are a geometric purist. The obvious straightup variation at the last bolt is 11+ in the guides but I've yet to run into anyone that has pulled it.

It's not listed here but the bolted line to the left has a straightup 10a variation that's decent. Nov 8, 2014

Somewhat contrived at the top where the routes collide. You could force the grade by staying in the middle area, but literally 7 inches away are good holds on either side of the "line".

Fun enough if you don't care what route you climbing/encroaching on. Only the forced version is 5.11 Mar 10, 2014
