A great route with a thin crux and interesting climbing. The second pitch isn't quite as good, as the climbing is a bit thuggier and more awkward.

Climb up just right of the left hand 'gate', up to a thin, balancy crux. More fun face moves up to a pumpy section bring you to the first anchor. Stop here or link up the 2nd pitch for a more enduro climb, though watch for drag.


This is the left-most route sandwiched between the two gates.


Bolts to fixed, chain anchors. P1 easy to top rope and a safe lead.

The first pitch is definitely classic (10c). The second (10d) is very fun as well, though I found it several orders of magnitude more difficult than the first- I fell a couple of times and it's ostensibly easier than my on-site grade. No problem linking 1 and 2. Probably not a bad idea to clip a runner to the anchor of the first. I believe I used 13 draws linking the two together.
