Description [Suggest Change]

I thought this was the most interesting and fun route in the cluster of 5.10 routes (most a little soft for the grade) left-center at Graveyard.

A few wonky lieback, stem, and face moves in a right-facing corner lead to a classic lieback section.

Rest up at the ledge just after halfway before tackling the gym-like headwall.
I thought the crux was at the top of the headwall near the last clip. Slightly runout but easy scrambling leads to the anchors (quicklinks and chains).

Location [Suggest Change]

This is the rightmost of the cluster of 5.10s at the top of the current social trail. This is just left of a fairly smooth face with obviously harder lines on it and just right of a short climb punctuated by a roof.

Protection [Suggest Change]

10 bolts to chains. There are two 2-bolt anchors up top - use the higher one on left with some easier and runout scrambling to get to it.

Protection description says, "there are two 2-bolt anchors up top - use the higher one on left with some easier and runout scrambling to get to it." Does anyone know why the other lower, green colored anchors are there? I could easily see someone wanting to just use those to prevent a longer run-out, but the lowering/rapping would be a difficult experience. Apr 8, 2018

Some chossy rock at beginning & end but mostly enjoyable climbing with a cool dihedral halfway up. 2.5 stars for me.
I found getting to the last bolt on the headwall to be the crux. Felt more 10b to me, although I'm 5'2", and my taller friend I climbed with had no problems. May 7, 2018
