Climb on top of the ear shaped flake using finger sized nuts or cams. Clip the first bolt and bust out the crux moves. The climbing through the next couple bolts is only slightly easier. After the third bolt, run it out up and right to the 2 ring bolt anchor.


On an attractive brown, steep slab buttress that is also home to the climbs "Straight Up"(5.9R) & "African Queen" (5.9+R).


a couple finger sized pieces and three bolts.

I'll give you a hint. These guys are climbing HARD for April. Great short, slabby fun. Apr 24, 2014
A nice thin slab route that sat there for way to long! The anchor was placed by another party in a funky spot. I'm going to move it up and left so the rope will run straight and avoid the pointless traverse at the end. This is going to become a popular top rope!

Def 10+! Apr 26, 2014
