Description

Beginning on Draft Root Beer, climb up through the first two bolts. From here climb up and right and clip from a good jug. Work the difficult traverse into a corner. Clip again and climb the corner up to a large block jug and eventually around the arete. Clip again again and pull to the anchor.

5.8 Variation: Shown in RED on the beta photo. Bypass the tough traverse section and Layback the crack as a more direct start for the route. Traditionally protect when necessary to reach the bolted line.

Location
