Description

Fun, blocky climbing up a crack leads upwards. When the crack peters out, gain the prow for a moment, and then cut back left to a thin crux near the top.

Location

This route is the left route on a prow that defines the crag (keep in mind this is not the furthest left route at the crag).

Protection

9? quickdraws plus something for the anchors.

The crux on this is pretty thin! I fell off a bunch of times until I figured out which one of the hundreds of little crystals to use, but the move is well-protected, so just go for it.

I'm pretty sure there are 9 bolts on this route plus the anchors, the Xs in the topo are approximate bolt locations. Jul 6, 2017
