Mixed route. Has some good cracks. To a wild overhanging finish with big "gym knobs".


Starts up a seam trends right up to some flakes and clip a bolt out left.


Six bolts and rack from .5 to 1" double up on tips and finger pieces.

If this is the line on the North face which is between the (? unknown name ?) left-most bolt line and "All Work No Spray", then ...

It's brilliant.
Interesting varied thoughtful climbing on a striking rock configuration.

I climbed it on Top-Rope using as my top anchor some long slings attached to a gnarly tree (obviously visible from the ground) above the route.
