Awesome route!


Start laybacking from the bottom of the prominent right-facing corner located near the middle of the wall, just left of Infrared Heart. Avoid the large chockstone wedged inside the back of the crack. We were able to get it to move a little by jumping on one of the corners, but were unable to dislodge it with a crowbar. Follow the corner until a point near the top where one has to step right onto the face. Follow face straight up for a few more bolts to the anchors. Although th route is consistent in difficulty, the last part is the crux


10 bolts

Climbs way better than it looks.
You guys have gone more darkside than EFR and I.
Though hiking out in the mid day sun I was glad I wasn't hauling a rack.

Maybe I'm not doing it right, but I just don't see the 10.a rating. I'm not comfortable leading above a 9, but I lead this without breaking a sweat (we got lost and didn't know the ratings). I'd put it around a 7+/8. I did use the left side of the corner a decent bit, so maybe that's cheating?

The moves we felt warranted a 10a rating were the last 15 feet or so of the route, face climbing above the crack to the anchors. Maybe you found an easier path than we did, as frequently happens with new climbs.

I'm glad to hear people are getting out here, and appreciate all the input and feedback.

Not trying to sound like a purist or complaining that the bolts should be chopped or anything because no one would want to carry a rack for a 10a to a sport crag (except apparently me), but if carrying gear around is your thing I think its worth it for a fun easy gear lead. Standard rack, although I brought a #4 up for the start. Doesn't look like much, but I thought it was pretty fun!
