Description

This is a slab route with 11+ climbing through first 3 bolts. I would value opinions on the exact grade. Crystals and small edges will clean up with travel. The first two bolts are to the right of the intended climbing line. This placement was established to avoid hitting the boulder behind you if you fall here. The top slab section eases off and climbs a seam - maybe 10 a/b - but is still thoughtful.

Location

This route starts below the belay ledge for Home on the Range. From the base of the formation, scramble about 8 feet up the low angle slab to a small bush and rock/boulder. You can lean your back against while you ponder the starting moves. The intended climbing line for the first two bolts is to the left of the bolt line, to avoid hitting the boulder behind you if you fall here.

Protection

9 bolts plus anchors.
