Description-Fun sustained route with several 5.11 cruxes, cool features and lots of variety.
-Scramble up the skirt slab. Place gear once the wall gets steep, move up and left for more gear to keep you off the ledge while making the move out right to the obvious ramping "handrail" feature.
-Traverse right on the horizontal to a bolt. SLING IT LONG before smearing up and left on a gaston/layback feature, moving into a pod.
-Get out of the pod and step an exfoliating crimpy face with bolts until you reach a ledge with a #2 placement.
-Muster your slab magic and trust heady smears past the last 2 bolts for the final 5.11 crux
-Place gear and make gradually easier slab moves up to the ring anchors.
single 70m gets you down to the base, 60m gets you to the skirt slab(with stretch) where you can walk off.
LocationCentrally located on the "tall wall" just to the right of a 200' lazer straight white groove (aka: "better slate than never").
