Tony Becchio on the first ascent.


Crux moves come right off the bat on excellent rock. The difficulties ease off after the second clip. Follow three more bolts to a two bolt anchor.

This route will likely be inaccessible when the water rises even minimally beyond summertime levels.


Roughly fifty feet left of Stuart's Rig and Danger Boy.


Five bolts.

I had a good time watching the guys finish this thing up on Sunday, and I got a lead in after they had all ran their laps. It's a fun route, is well bolted, and includes a crux on bullet hard rock. The upper section includes a bit of the obligatory Wheeler choss, but overall it's a good addition. Great work guys!
