Climbs up on the short overhanging face.


First route you come to. Turn around corner and see steep face with 4 bolts.

Fun route! Flashed it a couple weeks ago. Pretty easy climbing off the bat, maybe 10a moves for 20+ feet. Move up left in to a large horizontal crack (your clip will be above your head). There are a few ways to move out of it, I'll let you figure that out. Nothing too terrible though. Move up to a few not-so-great crimps. You will then smear your feet on just about nothing and throw from the crimps to a pretty large ledge. I would assume that the crimp section / dyno ending is the crux. 12a/b for sure. Good luck!
