Description

This is East Vail's easiest, drytool sport line. This fun, short line follows 6 bolts up a slabby face using pockets, cracks, and features that are roughly a tool-length apart. The route climbs similar to an easy Tourette's.

Begin below a shallow right-facing seam with sinker pockets and good feet. Feet become a bit sparse between 1st and 2nd bolt, but the pockets, seams, and features continue to be bomber. Trend up and right, traversing on a ramp to the chain anchors.

It is well-bolted for safety and fun. This is a great, first drytool lead and/or warm-up. It is an excellent introduction on how to 'read' Vail limestone. It would be significantly harder with snow on the slab, as the pockets and features may be hidden.

Location

It is in between IMAPNISS and Slabutt on a nice slabby face. Rap/lower from chain anchors.

Protection

6 bolts to 2-bolt chain anchor.
