Start below the trail at the base of three obvious stacked blocks that lean into the cliff (this makes for a good climb to identify your location as well, as you can't miss it.) Climb up the blocks and onto the face up to the anchor.


8 bolts?

Another option is just clipping a long a draw at the anchor and continuing up the last few bolts of PDR to the right to make the route ~20' longer. Jul 31, 2017

Alternate start on PDR if you don't want to deal with the leaning blocks. May 7, 2015
