Start on the slab to the right of the alcove (and start of Hold the Line). Thin starting moves lead to easy romp to the first set of chain anchors.

From the chain anchors, step across a shallow gully and pull over a bulge. Follow very featured, steeper rock to the summit. Once on the bulge the climbing significantly improves.

Can be led in a single pitch if you take precautions for rope drag.


10 feet right of Hold the Line.

See the Beta picture for relative location.


About 15 bolts if combined into one pitch. 2 rappels with a single 60 meter rope to descend.
