Thin moves have you wander up moving left than right to a tricky move to obtain a horizontal dike of sorts. Continue to the right then up.


This route can be found further up the right side of the buttress about 50' right of "Cat Burglar"


4 bolts reasonably protect the bulk of this climb. Rap route from a chain anchor. A TR can be set up via a hike up the gulley on the right.

Crux for me was clipping the first bolt off of crumbling footholds. A bit more choosy than the other routes at this crag.

Bolts are where you need them. There are actually 5 bolts on this route not 4. Apr 7, 2016
