Face climb up to a small roof/overlap and clip the first of three bolts which protect delicate face moves that lead into discontinuous cracks to finish. Large cams are needed to set an anchor.

An engaging route that if done in conjunction with the other routes nearby can provide a few hours or more of enjoyment. Morning sun and afternoon shade.


This is the route just left of Amber Waves of Grain and starts from the center of the ledge which runs along the base of the wall.


3 bolts (3/8"), gear to 2.5" (need pro to 4" for anchor)

Placed gold Camalot at base of crack about 6 feet above last bolt (pretty decent pro). Fairly sure a medium sized nut would slot in just beneath the Camalot. One piece of trad gear should do ya, since the climbing gets easier once the crack appears.
