The route has two ledges on it, making it a great warm-up. The crux is near the top and on great holds.


This is located 50yds south of overhang w/fixed line. It starts on the left side of an overhang near the trail with a 20' pine just right of the start. Means to and End is just to it's left.


9 bolts, rap chains w/70m or double ropes

You can lower off this climb with a 60m rope.

Done this a bunch of times now to warm up and always like it. Yes, 60m rope is totally fine to rap off with. And, the last bit may seem runout for the onsight, but the holds are great and staying vertical on the line of the climb is the way to go.

great route had a blast with the top section.
right bolt is loose at rap station, the bolt itself will spin slightly with finger pressure. probably just needs a quick wrench and it'll be good, seems solid otherwise

Climbed this yesterday but had to bail on the second to last bolt due to the falcon fly bys! Careful, there may be a nest near the top of this route. They were not happy with my presence.
