Start on the left end of the right bunker on an arete like feature. Easy slabish climbing leads to a stance below a roof where you will want to put an extended draw. Blindly reach up to good jugs and start trending left towards a chain draw (the left chain). From here you are in a decent jug below the chain and have 2 options: 1. Make one move left to another good incut then trend right on crimps to a jug which makes the route 12a/b or 2. from the jug go straight up on bad sloping edges, eliminating the jug out left for a 12cish crux...your choice.

From here move up towards a small roof on side pulls and underclings where you'll clip one more bolt. Then pull the roof on jugs, and tic-tac to the chains.


Right bunker on the left side. The start is located by a right facing corner/arete.


Bolts and some fixed perma draws.

you need quick draws for this route.

unless you feel like locking horns with a 20' runout while skipping the last 3 bolts....

Additional confirmation on the requirement of draws. I believe it is one below and three above.

Edited it. Someone must have taken them down. Been a few years since I did it and it was fully climbtechs at the time.
