Portions of the approach and cliffs of this area are on private land. MORE INFO >>>


Start up on easy ground with holds for the first few bolts. Slowly the holds die out just as you arrive at a small roof. Pull over on some sidepulls and body position and hit the real crux, getting to the anchors. Once you get level with the anchors there is a nice hold to clip from.


Starts just right of a belay bolt, with a loop of rope fixed to it. In between the routes Hipster Dufus and Beautiful Noise.


5 bolts to Anchors

Despite the moderate grade and the easy start with the crux at the finish, this wasn't a great warmup for me whatsoever. Also both Bombay Sapphire and Head Cleaner felt easier than this one.
