Can't really identify a crux. Pretty consistent easy 5.8 on the upper slab, mostly 5.6 below that. Really cool pock marks and texture on this upper slab. Some of them are like they were made by someone pressing their fingers into wet concrete to make the perfect holds. Watch out for the neat, but sharp, chert bands on this route.

Descent: Rappel route (70m rope), or rappel from chains to left 10' (60m rope).


Start on the left side of large flat ledge above the huge overhanging boulder. Route starts with some easy bolt protected crack climbing.


13 bolts to shuts. YOU NEED A 70m ROPE. Alternately, if you have a 60m, you can traverse left and lower off of Brice Jessen anchors.
