This route provides access to the top of the cliff and will provide a way to establish other routes. This route established ground up - watch out for the loose stuff. There is a section of crack that is not very protection favorable. Be certain that you are comfortable running out 5.8.

First bolt protects top of first band and second bolt protects overhang after first band.


Rap from anchor


Two bolts and two bolt anchor. Cams up to number 3, stoppers and tricams

A 60 meter rope might get you down, we used most of our 70 meter rope. If not, 60m will get you to a ledge about 25 feet off the ground where you can untie and traverse to a down climb.
