This route is listed as 5.4 A1 in the 2010 falcon guide but went free at about 10d. If your aiding it, scramble from the base to a large ledge then clip the first bolt with your ladder. Bolts to an anchor. If you wanna try the free thing, scramble up the start to the ledge, clip the first bolt then basically campus up and start crushing. Keep slightly right of the bolt line. Bolts are super close (bolt ladder) but with the horrid rock and wild exposer on your right side, you’ll be glad there so close.


On the west side of the summit. The bolts are painted so look carefully. 


Bolts, anchor with long chains. Expect rock to break. Be aware of people below.

2nd bolt is missing, still not to hard to navigate. Good climb, worth the hike. Sep 16, 2018
