DescriptionThis is a short but stout route, which essentially amounts to a roped bouldering problem. I'm settling at a V4, shouldery crux.
Start with some stiff moves off the block, and gain a decent clipping ledge for bolt 2. Decipher the powerful crux, and continue on dynamic 5.11- climbing to bolt 4. A couple careful moves will bring you over the ledge to the anchors. I've scraped a bunch of lichen from the moves to the anchors, but it's still a tad dirty on the final (easier) moves.
This route faces SW and gets afternoon sun in the summer. All other routes on the block will be in the shade at this time.
