Great route! Start on bolt line furthest to the right. Climb a good variety of holds up and left.


Route Furthest Right of Choss Garden. Right of Nettle.

Very fun. Obvious crux around 3rd to 4th bolt. Interesting climbing to the top. Good stuff.

Stellar route. Only one anchor at the top. Well, there's another one, but it's about 3 feet to the left. Kinks the crap out if your rope if you clip both.

I believe the top bolt is actually not the anchor point. you are supposed to head up and left through the chossy roof to a true anchor, but I agree bailing at that last bolt seems like best option. Old biner on it as of 4/19/12. Exceptional quartzite.

This is a lot like the 'less steep' part of Right Pile in that there are a ton of holds all over it and choosing the right ones is the crux. The climbing is super fun and well worth taking the time to suss out.
