Left... or right, maybe just go up.


Easy face climbing to a bolt about 15 feet off the deck quickly turns to a puzzling sequence to the next bolt. Don’t traverse too far to the right or left or you’ll miss the climb altogether. Once past the second bolt, scramble up to a third bolt and cross some questionable rock on your way to the anchors.


Approximately 40 meters from the north end of the cliff band, a large roof caps a relatively blank face. Two bolts are easily visible from belay ledge under the roof.


3 bolts to an anchor underneath the roof. Helmets are recommended due to the rotten rock surrounding the anchors. Rappel off with a single rope.

Puzzling indeed. Even on toprope after leading it it was still difficult to read (5.8?). three feet left or right seems to be the answer... but... then I guess you miss the climb...

Straight up the bolt lines felt harder than 5.8. Friction moves with very sloppy holds or super small 1 or 2 finger edges will get you through.

I supplemented the bolts with a handful of small camming devices: a #1TCU up to a .75 BDC4
