  • Description 

    Leftmost route on the boulder. Funky climbing but worthy as a warmup. Stay on the face and avoid the desire to pull onto the slab.


    4 bolts. Finish on the Tacos anchor.

    Originally had a different name but I was outvoted. FA by Casey Hyer, Clay Watson and Mike Perkins and in no particular order.

    You can finish via the rail traverse or by mantling over the top if you get freaked out by the sharpness. Its already way less snaggy than it was, but might be a good idea to drag a hammer or a rock along the lip and on the face behind the lip again.

    It would be cool (mid-12.??) climbing to traverse right at the second or third bolt and into Tacos. That face is already close to grid bolted so if someone wanted to I doubt it would matter.
