The crux is around the middle of the route. But the route could be improved with a fixed bolt or two in the general center of the climb. Currently one wonders right and then left for gear (has been TRed, probably easy 5.10). The best line would go straight up. Both routes were put up on the same day.


The route is in the best crack feature right of Joker. Walk off the back side.


Basic trad rack. There is no fixed gear, build your own anchor.
