Start with the a typical cruxy LRW start to easy climbing for the next 40 feet. Enter the steep red rock where you will find the real crux and then finish up with 20 feet of easier climbing.


In between Imitation Strawberry and Goiter Grabber.

This will be a great route once it cleans up. The rock around the crux seemed pretty iffy, I cleaned a couple golf ball sized chunks off.

Did this route again over the weekend. Either it's cleaned up a bit, or I'm just used to loose holds, but it seemed a lot better.

The crux on this thing is pretty much rotten choss. Scary to think that it has "cleaned up." At least it is very generously bolted.

I think the key is to step left through roof early rather than stay in the corner, even though that's easier. The rock is scarily bad in the crack and probably was not intended to be climbed.
