Really fun hybrid route on the narrow west end of the crag. There are 2 cracks on this narrow face. Take the right one which is about 5.8 intitially. Then, make a hard move (5.11ish) over a bulge protected by small gear, and move up past 2 bolts with sustained 5.11 face climbing to a 2-bolt anchor. It is possible to climb the obvious 5.easy chimney splitting the crag, then carefully walk over to set up a top-rope.


Bring some small Friends and small-medium stoppers, and save 2 QD for where the bolts above the crack.

Awesome route on a beautiful crag! Tried it last night and fell off the last move before it is possible to clip the first bolt and snapped the wire of the small fixed wire about 2/3 the way up the crack. The gear is bomber but took me a lot of effort to place.

Fired the route to the chains last night and definitely cannot agree with the 11+ rating. It is no harder than 5.11a. Also be wary that after you clip the 2nd bolt you are still far from done, even though that is your last pro.
