Description

This is the first bolted route you come to as you approach the cliff. You can stick clip the first or the second bolt. First bolt is in a less than optimal spot due to hollow rock on the right side, so if you can reach the 2nd bolt, clip that one.
Boulder a quick crux (V2ish) off the ground to a ledge, then move up and left on technical and thin moves (another V2ish crux) through the next bolt. Then head up to good holds and a quite dynamic crux getting to a weird "bulb" jug. Then immediately pull the hardest, and last crux (look for a nifty kneebar) to a good hold and easier moves to the top.
The grade of this route is still very much up in the air. So give suggestions once you climb it!

[Hide Comment] Lower boulder is not the most fun, but the route improves quite a bit after that. Some memorable sequences in fact. Aug 7, 2017

[Hide Comment] Crimps just below 2nd bolt are starting to peel off the wall. There's space behind them for a bit of glue. May be able to save them. This thing could get quite a bit harder without these holds... May 6, 2018
