Start approximately 100ft. to the right of The George route. If you like The George route this is a fun alternate start. Scramble up 10-15 Ft. to granite ledge to belay. Then follow nine bolts to two bolt anchor with chains. A two foot runner on the third bolt will reduce rope drag. It is possible to rappel however due to rope drag toperoping isn't recommended. General Camelback Caution should be used and helmets recommended.


Approximately 100ft down hill from The George route start.


9 draws and two anchor slings.

Watch out for the choss at the top. There is a convenient little overhang above the belay ledge to the left at head level where you can try to avoid the rocks that your climber will definitely rain down upon you. I would advise putting a runner on the 3rd and 4th bolts to avoid rope drag. If you want to top rope you should use a long runner for your anchor and disconnect the majority or your quickdraws maybe leaving one or two as directionals.
