Work up very easy rock in the corner to the first bolt, then blast up the overhanging wall, passing two breaks, to a finish that is much easier but still a bit dirty. Keep moving straight up until you can step left to the chains. Near the end of the overhanging section, you will use a large hold on the right that looks iffy but appears to be pretty solid. Endurance crux.


Start just a few paces to the left of Wild Rose below a corner that leads right up to the black streak.


5 bolts to chains.
