Fun route


Super fun climb. Very interesting start. The crux is 3/4 of the way up when you find yourself in a diehdral.Staying in the diehdral through the top is the crux, however you can move right to easier face climbing. After you leave corner much easier climbing to a great finish. Great exposure!


This route is a second pitch climb off the right side of the belay ledge. You gain access by either climbing NoBoma or Get Wet.

One of my new favorites, just watch for local kids throwing rocks off the legde above the anchors. It's becoming a popular activity these days.

great climb! very long route as well.

9 bolts + anchors with rap rings (not counting the few bolts with slings on them)

a 70 meter would allow a single repel if you were careful not to land in the water.

This is still a new climb with lots of lose holds so make sure you are delicate and your belayer is wearing there helmet.

I loved this route but the quality of the rock on this route is so unnerving... It's fortunately quite well bolted.

I thought overall the rock quality was pretty good. only encountered 2 holds that were loose and the rest felt solid. great route for the bird! about half way up the dihedral I busted right onto the slab. still felt 10ish overall but a soft 10. FYI if you use all bolts provided its 11 plus the anchors. this protects really well which would make it a good intro climb to 10's
