Description

There's a tricky sequence on the beginning of the route. You have to find the secret pockets on this steep start. It's a bit nerve-wracking to get to the visible bolt ~ 20ft up. It could be easy to deck onto the ledge. Good spotting is recommended.

Knobs and pockets dominate until you reach a nice-sized ledge. Go up and under the roof of the black bulge to find the 2-bolt anchor. It's a bit hidden up there.

Location

Furthest left and a bit around the corner from Black Widow, you have to head up to a higher terrace with a flattish area near the base of the climb. The leader has to step up on a ledge above the belayer to start.

Protection

There's a bolt on the face and bring gear good for pockets. 2-bolt anchor at the top of the climb.

I got a bomber small cam in a somewhat hidden pocket halfway to the first bolt, taking the sting out of the committing first section. Sep 27, 2015
