Close to the crux.


This is in the middle of the wall. It is trad/sport, but as of 4/3/13, the 2 bolts have no hangers (now replaced). There are fixed anchors up top.

Per Thomas Cuthbert: it has good holds. There are some tricky moves close to the top at the roof, but it ends with an easy finish.


Per Thomas Cuthbert: it is the middle climb of the three bolted routes.


Bring small/medium trad gear and 2 bolts (read above).

Whoever put the hangers back on this route, thank you soooooo much. It's a fun route. I love it!
