Start off a boulder and find a way to establish yourself on the left facing corner. Moderate climbing leads to a sit down rest and the upper half of the route. Progressively harder climbing up steepening rock leads to a series of pinches and good edges before a few longer moves to holds below the chains. Save some energy for the anchor clip.

High quality rock once leaving the initial ledge midway.


Located in the big amphitheater on the right side, about 5 min walk past the trail break from the lode. This route is the 2nd from the right and is distinguished by a small hanging left facing corner for the first two bolts.
