  • Description 

    Above the tree crossing at the Patio bouldering traverse. Just right of the Patio boulder problem is a slot leading up to a steep face. Climb the slot,(gear) then climb seams/cracks past four bolts to the top and a 2-bolts anchor. Good warmup for the other routes here.

    Protection 

    Small cams for the start and quickdraws.

    Kind of a weird route. Sort of a mixed route, yet in the upper climbing bolts are literally 6 inches away from good cracks. Yet, the crux section isn't very well-protected against the rampy/ledgy stuff below. If the protection was better thought out and the route adequately cleaned (bushes, lichen, crumbly rock), this would be a 1 or 2 star route. Half star in its current state.
