This is a good route. The guidebook describes it as "spectacular" and "puts the leader in vry phtogenic positions."

Climb up to a bolt, move left and around/over a roof. The 1st bolt is a bit less useful if you blow it before the 2nd bolt. The rock around the 2nd bolt seemed to have a crack in it. Continue up past 6 more bolts. Supposedly you can get a small cam in between the 5th and 6th bolts.


This is in the middle of the north face of the Discovery Wall. It lies right of Mammary Pump/Lost Horizons and right of Forty Days of Rain.


7 bolts, small cam?, bolt anchor.
