This route is a lot of fun. Head up the left side pull and balance yourself while desperately trying to find a god damn foot hold. Eventually you will get up to what gives this route it's name: a sweet hole. Shove a couple digits in here, and haul for all you're worth, then convert to a undercling and continue to haul. You'll reach some good holds and move up and arete. Not tough at this point, but you may be too pumped to finish it off.


This route is the first bolted route you will see, and is far from the other routes. It's rather short, and you have to scramble up to a ledge to reach the beginning.
