Great route to learn how to do tricky aid and some delicate nailing. You can protect the route by top rope as I placed rappel anchors at the top of the route. Start in a right facing dihedral working up 7-8 feet and tackling the small overhang which then follows a thin crack which diagonals slightly right until it jouns with another route which is now bolted but was done by Jay Kinghorn on aid the same time as I did this route.


Birdbeaks to 1/2 angles, also will take RPs and HB offsets, and the largest piece I placed was the first piece which was a green Alien cam (1/2").

Funny to see this here. Good going. Did you notice the single bolt stud at the bottom? I used to rope solo this all the time in the late '90s. Fun practice nailing.
