While the route doesn't look pretty, the climbing is super fun! The route can be easily identified by the 3 fixed permadraws that protect the initial traverse.

Stick clip the first permadraw and start on two underclings. Boulder past a quick sequence then traverse right past 2 more permadraws. To reduce rope drag, clip the next bolt (#4) with a shoulder length sling. Continue hand traversing the jug rail to the right until you can stand up and reach back left around the corner to clip. Alternatively you could climb straight past bolt #5, but the line of least resistance is to the right of the bolt line. Continue up the steepening wall above to a crux at the last bolt.


This is the furthest left route in the main overhang of the Dungeon.


8 bolts. Bring 1 shoulder length sling and 4 draws as the first 3 are fixed for cleaning purposes.

Really fun jug hauling to a punchy, boulder problem crux. These moves aren't too bad, but add in the pump factor, and you'll have to fight. Great route! Jul 23, 2017
