Bullet rock on a just under-vertical wall. Start on sustained 5.11 climbing with shallow dishes and sidepulls. About halfway up the holds, and particularly the feet, disappear. The crux section is about 20' long and moves through bad gastons, tiny crimps, and smeary footholds, and appears to be V11/V12. Finish on slightly overhanging 5.11 jugs.

I installed anchors, scrubbed holds, and marked bolt placements, but realized the route was far beyond my abilities. Somebody bolt this thing, it's a killer line! You can reach the anchors by lowering off Law-son through the scrubby-looking tree. Probably be 10-11 bolts long.


To the right Law-Son.


Currently TR anchors only.
