Fun climbing on short tuffa pinches and such to a blocky top section. The route keeps going up onto less than vertical rock but the last bolt has a FIXE ring on it and I would recommend lowering from that.

A cool move off the ground on vertical rock gets you started. Then steep climbing on mostly good pinches and underclings take one up to just below the lip. The holds turn blocky and slopy and the crux hits turning the lip onto vertical ground.


The 3rd or 4th route from th left end of the wall. It has a nearly impossible to read name plate.


Bolts and a cable anchor, though there is a Fixe loweing ring on the last bolt.
