Not sure if anyone has established this route or not. Didn't see anything about it on the site. Would be interesting if I was the first. It's a pretty decent route that starts with left hand on a ledge under the overhang, right hand on a small jug above the overhang and a heel hook on a small ledge just the right of the starting hand hold. You move left to a crack with some holds in it, move to another heel hook on the right hand starting hold then start going up to a sloper with the right hand , match with the left then hit the huge jug above that and smooth sailing from there.


On the opposite side of the first big boulder you come upon in the Almost There bouldering area. Right when you top the hill it will be at your 2 o'clock.


Pad, pretty safe landing
