Description

Climb up and right on some cool, low-angle, white quartz. After gaining a small bulge, hook back left to reach the ledge that cuts diagonally up and right across the face. Bust a boulder problem off the ledge (crux) and continue up the upper headwall to the anchor.

Although this route is bolt protected, the bolts are a little more widely spaced than on a typical modern sport climb. Rest assured, the climbing is easy relative to the crux, and the harder moves are well protected. Use caution on the quartz as it is a little flakey. I tried to clean off any obvious loose bits, but there may still be some crunchiness.

Location

Located to the right of Prada. Lower off.

Protection

7 Bolts. Mussy Hook Anchor.

Cool, glad you enjoyed it. I also thought Prada was tricky the first time I climbed it. Later, I figured out a different sequence at the crux that felt much easier for me. Different strokes for different folks, I guess. Thanks for getting some traffic on this route. Jun 15, 2016

Good climb!

It felt more like 5.8 to me, but 5.9 to my wife who is shorter than I.There is a right undercling starting the crux that is shrubby, a little trimming might be in order...Thanks for the routes, Todd! Jul 17, 2015

Thanks!

You can pretty much climb everything right now. A little warm in the sun, a little chilly in the shade. Dress appropriately and go get it! Mar 25, 2015
Nice, looks like another fun climb. What are temps like up there now? Do you want sun or shade. Mar 25, 2015
