Description

Begins with some energetic pulls through a roof section and turns into sustained steep face climbing. One crux low pulling the roof and another tricky section up high after a good rest in the smooth dihedral.

Location

Begins in a small cave, the trail spits you out right in front of Chalkdust

Protection

Bolts. They look a little spread out from the ground but when you are on it they feel adequate.

Generally speaking, R means possibility of injury, X means possibility of death, and PG-13 means long fall potential. Hopefully this clears things up for you. Sep 7, 2016
Why PG13??? Does the bolts looking spread out from the ground but adequate when you are on it makes it PG13? Or is something else going on. PG13 means to me injury potential due to a large whip onto a ledge or something and/or possibly decking from a low crux with a less than attentive belayer. Spaced bolts exist everywhere so I was wondering if there is more info. Want to hit up this climb and this area soon.
