A slabby route complete with a giant ledge just below the first bolt. A little sandy/dirty as of Oct 2008.


Look about 5m right of the obvious arete to find this slabby bolted line.


5 bolts to anchors.

Surprisingly stiff for the grade; the moves past the second bolt are balancy. The "huge holds" referred to in the guidebook don't exist, somebody told me they all broke off. That might explain how sharp the remaining holds are.

I would only call this stiff for the grade for Muir. IMHO, its stiffer than the other 5.9s at Muir, but its a nice climb with a lot of good balance moves.
