A slightly sandbagged face climb just left of an arete that features safe, but widely spaced bolts and a very intense crux at the last bolt.

Reach high for the start holds and follow big pulls between good pockets and knobs until the angle lessens. A few balancy moves through a pebbly band lead to more vertical terrain with crisp patina edges that end just before the last bolt. Grab a shake, then pinch past the crux on some subtle, protruding bumps to the chains.


On the right side of the wall before a small gully.


Bolts and a two bolt anchor.

Just in case anyone gets on this route and is confused- the crux move used to feature a bigger move to fairly good sidepull, but recently when I was climbing this route, the sidepull broke off completely. The route is still climbable, as there are some small knobs surrounding where the bigger hold used to be, but I'm not sure if the grade is the same seeing as that was the crux. Apr 28, 2015
