This obscure route apparently sees very little traffic, judging from the absence of chalk and the cobwebs in the pockets.

Nice bouldery moves lead through the first 3 bolts - unfortunately the holds are also quite sharp. So if your tips survive, you then have a bunch of easier climbing on holds that are still pretty sharp.

On the whole, this route has decent enough stone and movement to warrant a star or so, but it isn't likely to be anyone's favorite. Worth doing if your in the area and your fingertips aren't already ragged.


one route left of Touch of Gray. two routes left of Chainsaw Willy


8-9 bolts to anchors
