Description

Slightly overhanging route with two distinct cruxes.

A few technical moves on a slab gains a ledge below the steeper wall above. A quick thin move off the ledge leads to deep pockets at the third bolt and the first crux- a big move off a shallow two-finger pocket. Better pockets follow, but tricky reach to a shallow two-finger pocket looms above. Past this the holds improve dramatically to the chains.

Since it ends below a big roof this routes tends to stay dry in rain. Gets lots of morning sun.

Location

Right of Golden Snow Cone.

Protection

Bolts to a two bold anchor.
