Description

An excellent moderate trad climb! Make your way past/around the moss to the crack below the overhangs. Step left around these features to the crux left foot smear to a blind reach over the lip and thank-god-jugs. Move right then back left, heading for the obvious anchors. Step around a corner and then stem out to get a secure stance to clip the anchors.

Location

Below "The Flakes" which are just left of the Nouveau Riche diagonal crack start

Protection

Gear to 3", though a 4" cam could be useful right below the anchor

one of the best easy trad routes in the area. Get on it! Oct 30, 2017

I love this route, I've led it at last 20 times. But I have to finally say it's a 5-8 when compared to other 5-8s in the area (i.e. Exodus or Routecrafters). Some of the bulge moves are committing and the pro - while solid and never run-out - is not always at your chest when you make those moves. Be solid at 5-8 to enjoy this one safely. Jul 23, 2018

Super fun climb. I put it at 5.7. It was noticeably easier than Exodus for me. Feet get a bit sparse a couple of times but they are there. Jul 28, 2018

There is a wasp nest about 3/4 of the way up (just past the point where the climber goes out of sight) in the crack. I was able to finish the climb without issue, but I had to pause for a couple minutes while one of the wasps settled down in the crack. Jul 28, 2018 · Temporary Report
