This route climbs recessed crimps, a mantle move and a few pinch-holds following bolts to the top. It is really enjoyable cruxy-climbing.


It is located 10 feet right of 'Clear Cut.' The top anchor is right next to a ponderosa tree. It climbs nearly the tallest part of the wall.


Fully protected with 6 bolts and two bolt anchor.

I think it probably goes 5.12, but I can't be certain as it felt very hard as I am out of shape. Feel free to grade differently.
