An interesting 5.8 with a few awkward moves on razor sharp edges. It'll feel harder than 5.8 if you don't figure out some of the hidden, not so obvious moves right away. IMHO...your average 5.8/5.9 leader may not like it that much.
5.10 on up leaders probably wouldn't mind it as a warm up though, especially if their fingers are used to sharp limestone edges.

5 bolts to anchors.


Located to the climbers' right of Pine In The Ass, just right of the rotten corner.
You can start up the small, rotten chimney/crack, then traverse right to first bolt or just climb straight up the low angle slab.

I totally agree with G's comments about this route. It's only worth your time if 'Pine' is too difficult for you to warm-up on... and then barely worth your time.

This was one of my very first routes I've climbed. It definitely feels a little tricky for a 5.8 if that's what you usually lead. Some of the moves are obvious and some are a little tricky to figure out but it's not bad for new climbers like I was when I first tried it. Overall it's a decent sharp climb.
