Description

This route ascends a mostly vertical wall with sections that are just over and just under vertical. The technical crux comes between the first and second bolts, but don't let your guard down because the route is fairly sustained through most of it. Fun technical route up sharp but great limestone.

Location

This route is the furthest left route in the alcove area. The next routes to the left are the group of 5.9s on the slabby wall around the corner and up the hill.

Protection

11 bolts to 2 bolt anchor with biners

Thought this was a 5.9 so we warmed up on it. It felt harder but I didn't think 11c. Good fun though. Don't pull too hard on the glued on rock. Haha Mar 8, 2015

Awesome Ben, thanks! I thought it felt a bit soft for 5.11c, but that's all i could figure out based on Misty's topo, updating the route info now. Mar 9, 2015

I have no idea how anyone could give this only 1 star. It's not the crag classic, but only because everything else is so good. Dec 31, 2017
