This fun route involves various stemming and palming maneuvers which make the bottom section of this route seem longer than it is. Well worth doing if your passing by. Walk off the south side slabs.


3 bolts protect the hard moves; above easy groove/crack; gear needed for belay/anchor (2-3 inches).

Technical with unlikely moves. Worth doing.

Funky moves on this odd route make it seem longer than it really is. Great job by Bob and Scott on cleaning up this route, as it was somewhat loose and not overly appealing when originally done on TR. Two stars out of five.
