DescriptionThis climb is missing most of the chickenheads which are so prevalent on other areas of the formation and provides harder climbing.
Climb up a blocky ramp or the face to a high first bolt at the start of a bulge. Climb up steep rock, and clip the second bolt. A fingertips-only hold and stemming in a very shallow, right-facing corner will solve the crux.
Climb up a short trough to clip the third bolt. Face climbing on nubbins and smears lead past the next bolt and the start of a finger crack.
Clip the last bolt and use the finger crack and nubbins 20 feet to easier climbing and numerous chickenheads to the anchors.
The real name of this route is unknown, but I provided the name to avoid numerous "unknowns." If anyone knows the real name, I will change the name to the real name.
