Description

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.

Protection

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
