Jackie Trejo coming to the second crux.


Climb up face into a crack. After the fifth bolt you end up at a good rest where you traverse left on some slab. Finish at a two bolt anchor.


7 bolts

The route description may be a bit off--traverse RIGHT to two bolts on slab before the anchors (see the route beta photo).

Yes, traverse RIGHT at the ledge. Someone has added bolts in the dihedral directly above (probably for a link-up), and they look on-route because it is hard to see the last two bolts out to the right that lead to the anchor for Double Flipper.

Yep, we were warming up on this and ended up on new 11b because the first leader went straight into the dihedral instead of right.
