Description

Climb the easy, juggy slab up and left to a steep section culminating at a small roof. The crux is transitioning into the left-facing open book. Slot-climb to a ledge with the first anchor. Either belay a second or continue (must have at least a 60M rope) to the second set of chains up under a large roof. The climbing above is less difficult but gets less traffic and accumulates more sand.

Rebolted to the top with SS glue-ins 2018.

Protection

QDs. 8 bolts. Chain anchor with permadraws.

Very fun route! Easy beginning but high first bolt about 12ft up. Best climbing is from bolts 4-8. Nice rest before moving above the roof. Undercling slot for hand under roof to big power move on slopey gently ribbed face. I thought moving above the roof was most difficult. Then traverse right into the fun open book feature. I couldn’t stem my feet across both sections at the bottom of the book b/c I was too short (5'4") so had to use a little more power than a taller friend. Wedge in the open book with cool stemming. Another nice rest area. Finish off in the wedge and up to first anchor. 8 bolts to first anchor - chain anchor with permadraws. I wasn't able to spot the 2nd anchor from the first anchor, and decided not to deal with the extra sandiness. Jul 25, 2018
