great route


The only moderate route on this portion of the wall. This route features long reaches between good holds. The climbing eases after the 5th bolt, however the pump crux might throw you. A clipping hold broke near the 5th bolt recently, which has made the clip a bit harder.


To the right of The Siege


8 bolts, two bolt anchor

Replaced the rusted, duct taped anchor biners with new Trango steel biners on 5/27/15. Had to hang one of the new biners from a rusted quicklink, since I wasn't able to unscrew the link with a wrench or hang a new link straight from the bolt. If I feel really industrious, I might haul bolt cutters up there and clean the old quicklink to clean the whole thing up.

Just awesome. Get a belayer you trust and have fun clipping some really nice glue in bolts!

This route was rebolted with ASCA SS glue in bolts in July 2017.
