A route on the far left side of the crag. You can start on the top of the block or start at the bottom of Blackstone 2. Rap bolts on top.


Use 6 draws if you start from the ground; 5 if you start from the top of the block. Chains at the anchor.

I recall this having a 5.9-ish move around the 2nd or 3rd bolt.

Definitely a 5.9 feeling move if you go straight over the bulge where you're thinking, 5.7 of you shoot right of the bulge then traverse left.
