The route starts off hard right away with a left hand arĂȘte and mostly blank slab. The bolts are fairly close together, but use care on the first three bolts because it's easy for something to unexpectedly blow off. about 3/4 of the way up you get to a crimp, which feels like the biggest hold in the world. After reaching the crimp it's significantly easier but still fun.


This route is immediately right of Deft Jam in the Confederate Crack area, which is part of the West Side. Look for a obvious arĂȘte for a left hand.


(8) bolts to an anchors with fixed rap rings.

This route is the coolest, most intense, arete-slab-laybacking-off-dimples-and-wrinkles route I've ever climbed! Very unique. A must-do! Mar 21, 2017
