  • Description 

    Do a bouldery start past the first bolt, then get reachy jugs and a sloper hands traverse. This was named after the axe-head shaped pinch flake after the 4th bolt (and the fact that this whole section of wall was blasted during construction of the aqueduct!). The rating is tentative, it need opinions! 5.9+ was my first guess...but it may be harder for shorter folks....


    It is 10 feet right of Big Tuna and 20 feet left of Wyoming Prairie Dogs.


    6 bolts and a 2-bolt anchor with lower off hooks.
