Crux is passing the mini bulge near the top. Match on underlings and utilize some small crimp to move higher.


Starts 5 feet to the left of the chimney.


Bolts and bolted anchor with Mussy Hooks. Lower off. Shares anchor with the 5.9 to the left.

Fun little route. A few choss areas but well worth doing. I rated it much lower because I'm a tall dude--6'4". It's not that hard if you got the reach. Nicely bolted--i.e. good clipping stances.

Definitely tall friendly. I'm 5'10 and my partner 6'2 skipped holds that I needed. Clipping stances are great.
