This route shares the start with Small Axe and Telache on big jugs through the first couple of bolts. The crux is found just after the three routes split when you have to make a bigger move between not quite as good of holds. Overall a fun route if you can figure out which way to go and not get confused among the sea of quickdraws leading you astray.


This route begins just left of the cave opening and shares the start with several routes. Where the route splits this is the second route from the left and has chain draws on all the bolts instead of cable draws like are on some of the adjacent routes.


5 or 6 bolts to 2 bolt anchor. All permadraws

The "warmup". Hold broke above the roof and, to me, now feels harder than 11a. Jan 12, 2017
Yes, the "hold" that broke was a block the size of a small refrigerator. Definitely harder now. May 6, 2018
