I love this route! Such a pleasent surprise!

It looked fun, but it was way more fun than it looked. Really nice holds, great flowing movement and a crux that is technical and powerful are some of the attributes that make this route rock.

Climb in to and up the corner using some great holds and the crack. Stemming will make it easier. A good rest before the roof lets you prepare for the crux. Move out right and layback and do some other funky stuff to gain a sweet finger crack that leads to the chains.


In the middle of the cliff look for the corner crack leading to a roof.


6 bolts to anchor.
