Description

A steep overhang to a short vertical section. A fun route to climb. I listed the difficulty as 5.9, which is what the guide lists and presumably what the FA set, but community consensus seems to be that the route is more like 5.10b on lead and 5.9 on toprope. Due to the overhang some clips are quite strenuous.

Location

At the very end of the west area. Keep going until you see the big and obvious overhang with a piece of old webbing hanging near the start.

Protection

Bolts (6) Many people toprope instead; to do this, hike up above the route and set a TR off of the two solid trees, and preferably rap down to set a quickdraw at the lip of the overhang to prevent big swing-outs.
