Crank a hard boulder problem right over the bolts or sneak right around it. Thoughtful face climbing leads to big moves using pockets, tufas and flowstone on the very overhanging headwall. The crux will be found here; your pumped forearms will inform you of the exact spot.


Start on a flat boulder a few feet left of where the approach trail meets the wall.

12a if you go straight up at the start, 11c if you go to the right. The opening boulder problem is both hard, painful, and out of character with the rest of the route. I highly recommend skipping it!

Great route.
