BETA PHOTO: Starting the crux on the FA


The centerpiece of the cliff. It's a great climb that will keep you thinking. Climb past the first 3 bolts at around 5.9. The next 3 bolts protect the sustained crux, up a thin vertical seam. Finish the crux and go right to a small ramp (bomber medium wire). Continue up then left to the moderate exit cracks which take great pro.


6 bolts and a few small/medium wires and cams. Trees for the top anchor.

Glad you enjoyed the route. It's a gem.
For the time being we decided against bolt top anchors. There are plenty of trees.
