This route as described is an amazingly good warmup. At the far left side of the North Wall is an unknown bolted line. Start out right of the first bolt on small holds. Climb up to reach a left diagonal rail feature. At the third bolt do a balancey move left to reach the arete. Climb up to the crack past another bolt and then follow crack to a set of anchors with a nice stance. The original bolted line continues way left over the bulge and into slabby neverland. Don't forget to look for jugs on the left side once in the crack.


Far left side of the north wall.


Four bolts, some hand sized cams and wires.

Nice warm up, bring a #3 C4 and you are good to go to the chains with one fixed nut on the way.

This route is super unique and a ton of fun. A great bouldery beginning into some slab, than and arete, to a crack! This route has it all!

If you want, you can clip the anchors for pro and climb through the awkward chimney for some extra 5.7 fun.

Such a great route!

after the anchers, I tried to lead up the chimney then right onto the highest vertical face and up and over. I had a good mix of small nuts to protect the daunting top out but did not trust the rock quality to hold if I blew it so i down climbed back to the ledge. Would be nice to have that upper section bolted as there is some really nice climbing and its very majestic looking from the bottom.

Do you mean the face at the top of "Turn the Other Cheek"? or around the corner to the left?
