Starting to the right of Thornbush, this route follows the frustrating sloped blocks directly to the top. The crux is getting over the first overhanging block with one small crimper on steep sloped block. Loose block about 12 feet up is not a solid hold, but did not come out while cleaning route. Very fun vertical climb with challenging blocks and bulges to work over. Still some loose rocks as cleaning the route is a work in progress.


Find the thornbush in a chimney about 10' up. This route is immediately to the right.


Tough to protect lower half. 2 small nuts or cams will get you over the crux. Standard rack will sew up the upper half.
