Located in a National Forest Fee Area MORE INFO >>>


Low angle at the beginning with lots of big holds. Trend up and left until you reach the base of a corner. Use the crack and some stemming to gain a really good gaston pocket. One or two more tricky moves will get you to big holds and the anchors.


This route is located immediately left of Drop Zone and to the right of Bad Faith. It heads up and to the left into an obvious corner feature.


Seven bolts to chain and ring anchors.

Pretty dirty when I climbed it, so be cautious with your foot placements. The stemming/crack section through the last few moves was worth the climb.

climbed it today and it's cleaned up a lot. Different from most AF routes and a good moderate. Super fun

Great route, seemed clean - still some loose stuff on the rappel/lower so watch out for people standing under you on the way down.

This route is really quite fun. The slaby moves in the beginning are kind of thrilling as you have to trust some less than ideal feet on smallish hands. The corner is also a cool feature with great holds. This one is worth doing.
