This route starts up the right start of Footwork Footsmerk, and continues up the blocky dihedral to a set of bolted anchors. The Crux is low, and if you're leading it the gear could get rather run out up top. This route is probably best to top rope.

A much variation of this route is to stay to the left of the blocky dihedral, and not use any of the holds on it for your hands or feet. This likely pushes the grade up to 5.9+ and is a wonderful slab route on its own.


This is the second set of anchors on the right side of the cut if you come in from the trail. Best identified by the blocky, left facing, dihedral.


Single bolt for the low crux, standard rack to the top. Best to top rope.

Though the bolts are not there, a couple of trad pieces will protect you well enough. I don't see this as PG-13. Aug 1, 2017
