Description

A nice little bouldery route.

Start with some techy movement to get established at the first bolt, then make a big deadpoint/dyno to an obvious jug at the second bolt (keep an attentive belay here to avoid body-slamming your climber).

One more large move brings you to some nice jugs from which you clip bolt three and ponder the final cruxy moves. Several viable sequences exist here - commit to one and aim for the slopey ledge below the shuts.

For such a short route, it packs in a good amount of powerful climbing. Worth doing if you're hankering for some roped bouldering.

You may not expect much when looking at this climb and comparing it to some of its neighbors, but this short pitch is full of fun.

There are two distinct cruxes - one near the bottom and one at the top. The excitement doesn't end until you are clipping the chains after executing a long move off a bad pocket with the last bolt below your feet. Aug 24, 2015
