BETA PHOTO: Right side of Homestake Crag

Description 

This is a fun route on the far right side of the cliff (it is the right-most route). It can be top-roped easily by scrambling up around to the right. Please use your own biners if top roping!

Easy moves to the third bolt, then an interesting step across left. Set up and crank through several hard finger liebacks to the top.

Protection 

5 Bolts, chain anchors.

Is this the furthest climb on the right hand side of the wall (4 bolts and anchors, I believe)? Some locals we talked to said this used to be a 5.9 or so, but a hold broke near the top and so getting from the 3rd to 4th bolt is significantly harder now. I agree. The beginning is easy, but the last 10 feet of that route felt more like an 11- (at least) to me!! Weird fingercrack seam and smeary feet. Pumpy too.

The route can be done going up and right of corner to a big pinch skipping the finger crack. The clip is easy from the pinch for a 10b climber.
