Description Suggest change

Follows the seam straight up. Make Rifle-y moves up the overhanging groove closest to the bolt line. Crux to get into the jagged overlaps with body english trickery, much kneework, and interesting grips that consistently face the wrong way. The middle section with gratuitous jugs on blade shaped flakes gives way to a pumpy mix of positive jams, locks, and slopers on a slight overhang.

Stick clip the 2nd bolt, stand in a protected spot and belay to the right. Shattered rock provides some cool holds but even after tons of cleaning, take care.

Would be better if more sustained. A bit squeezed but shouldn't share holds.

Location Suggest change

On the blocky steep wall just before, down and right from, the main tiered wall at the Joint. The "trail" should take you right by these routes.

In between Big Shot and Bluebeard. Follows a vertical seam/crack with blocky features. bolts through square cut overlaps on the right side of the seam, diagonal fractures on the left.

Protection Suggest change

6 bolts to rings.
