Description [Suggest Change]

This is a fun route and seemed to be the hardest of the three 5.9 routes on the rock. The crux is about a third of the way up on thin slab moves. Most of the holds are small on this rock, but the crux holds almost did not seem to exist. It seemed like just smooth rock. A 70m rope just barely gets you down, it seemed like the route was 120' long.

Location [Suggest Change]

This route is to the right of Phoenix and is the furthest right bolted route on the rock. There are raspberry bushes at the base. You descend from the anchor at the top.

Protection [Suggest Change]

14 bolts to anchors.

It is possible to rap from this anchor diagonally to set the TR anchor for the 5.7 next to it, but a single 70 meter rope will not quite be long enough then to reach the ground if rigged for both climbs, but it will be close enough to make it work (we just stepped up on the first easy moves on the 7 to make it work).
