Description

This one is quite fun and well worth running a couple of laps on. The climb starts out mellow as you make your way toward the looming person sized crack.

There is a little bit of a runout when compared to the more recently bolted routes as you are "Walking the Plank" and depending on your height you may have to do a dicey move to get to bolt 5 following the runout.

Crossing the crack and onto the pillar is definitely the crux. This is followed by some longer pulls on good holds on your way to the anchors. Really nice rock on this one.

Location

The is currently the fourth bolted line (left to right) on The Draw Pile. This climb is easily identifiable as it climbs across a giant crack and onto a pillar feature at it's midway point.

Protection

7 bolts to chain anchors.

No clue who bolted this other than it was after 2009 (the bolts have the manufacture date on them).

Happy to rename this if someone knows the actual name. This is what we called it. May 14, 2016

Good clean fun, the best of the three original bolted routes on the cliff. This one will become popular as the cliff sees more traffic. May 21, 2016

A few adventurous moves over the arete. Missing the clip prior to the traverse behind the large pillar could end poorly; otherwise a fun romp. Jun 11, 2018
