    Hmmm. This is a funky line up very low 5th or possibly 4th class terrain. It's not completely clear that this is a route, but there is this lonely bolt.

    On the farthest reaches of this right side of this crag is a stray bolt on the margin of climbable terrain. Go up past this lone bolt. Force yourself to stay right of the bolt line, Nurse Jackie, to the left. Get to a 2 bolt anchor with Mussy hooks. Move on.

    Others have provided a name, Dexter. This may have been climbed in the 1980s by Ed Ash.


    This is on the farthest reaches of this right side of this crag.


    A light rack, 2 bolts.

    Led up this just to clean the anchors. Probably one move of 5.3 and then not any harder than walking around the back. It should be called this "it is what it is", since that's pretty much the deal. Great for new leaders. You can lead up to the first bolt then combine the line w/ Nurse Nikki (5.5) for a really safe first lead.

    Good route to learn trad. The couple bolts to the left allow you to weigh your gear placed, without fear of them pulling out and you falling a substantial distance. Tricky placement in some dirty spots, but will give a new trad leader a feel for it. Bomber nut placements, tricky for cams as the crack is flaring in many locations. Otherwise, not a very exciting route.

    Odd to even have this one bolt as a route, especially when a well-bolted 5.5 is just to the left.
