Classic spicy New River mixed climbing. Hard to read movement through sloping holds and small crimps leads to a fairly relaxed band of horizontals through a small budge. Long, blind reaches in between edges will bring you to a final mantel and topout.

The movement feels like fairly standard 11+/12- fare, but the slick nature of the stone and hidden holds makes it feel much harder at first.


Intricate face and slab climbing just to the right of the No Sign of Intelligent Life.
Look for 2 spaced bolts followed by a series of horizontal bands. Two more bolts lead to the top.
You can easily drop a toprope through the anchors after climbing and topping out on any nearby routes.


4 bolts + 2bolt anchor. Bring a single rack from #3 c4 down to yellow c3 or equivalent. The bolts are old (1990) and should be treated with caution. The anchors look relatively recent and are in good condition.

The first bolt is very high but can be clipped with an extra long stick. There is some gear before the bolt, but it could be tough to keep the leader safe during the cruxy movement in between
