First bolt is a little high but easy climbing up to that on good ledges...This route has 2 crux sections and is well protected for those moves. Be a solid 5.9 climber to lead this route.


20 feet left of Bling Bling. This line follows the center of the wall. Variations can be climbed left and right from these anchors.


4 bolts plus chain anchors.

Rock quality on the upper half is very loose and breakable. Tread lightly, or you might find yourself airborn... harder than 5.8 in my opinion as well.

Ya know, I can remember how many times people have chuckled at me and Freddy wearing a blow tube and hand broom whilst climbing...there is a reason for climbs need travel...which in turn cleans the climb...I'm pretty sure that there is no death blocks on this I was one that helped cleaned this and make it as it is...would anyone care to borrow my cleaning apparatus (I'll send it to you)? Would you care to make an effort to make this better? I am not claiming that this is a 5 star route. However, for a 5.9 climber is worth doing....otherwise, we wouldn't have bolted it...I need specifics in order to make this climb better (which involves work and $). I changed the grade per what else can we do to make this route better? The reason the second bolt is where it is, is due to rock quality for the bolt (in order to keep people safe) because the rock quality below that just plain sux.
