A good choice on a bad weather day. It's right above camp, and is set up for rappelling with a single 60m rope. Plus, if a storm comes in quick, you will probably be near a bolt you can lower off. Many, many hours of hand drilling produced this route. Like them or not...
P1 - 5.10, 30m - Stay left after the left bolt. Easy to cheat past the short crux. (6 bolts + gear)
P2 - 5.10, 30m- - Techy mantle above the belay (easy to cheat.) Change corners several times. Finish with 5.9 kneebar thrutching. (Many bolts + #3 cam.)
P3 - 5.6, 20m - Ramble up and right. At the end, stay left to belay on a nice perch. You can see the P2 belay from here. Avoid a higher belay that is on non ring bolts (awkward stance.) (2 bolts + gear)
P4 - 5.9, 30m - Head up to the bolt, walk right on a foot rail. Climb up and right to a triangular block with a 3" crack. Climb the block and head left. Gain another crack that heads back up and right. (2 bolts + gear)
P5 - 5.7, 30m - Head up right from the belay to a bolt. Continue up and right to a left facing corner. Tricky gear (may require digging with a nut tool) but easy climbing. Belay at the bolts, or higher up on slung blocks. (A couple of bolts + gear)
Approach as for True Grit, but stop immediately after the roofs meet the ground. Look up for the bolts.
