Lots of crack climbing, mostly .9 with a few .10- moves (at the top, after pulling the roof) and one short .10c crux section. Crux is near the bolt and involves a mantle, a high right foot and a powerful reach up and to the right to a solid jug rail.

Top of route is a little strenuous but not technical.

Short approach, North Facing and in the shade. Good for hot valley days.


When facing the wall from the trailhead, route is about 100 feet to the right.


1 bolt, gear - Doubles of .3-1 (Camalots), Singles of 2-4, med. nuts. Bolted anchor at top. 70M rope to get down.

Excellent route! Long, varied, and thoughtful the whole way. Crux at the bolt seemed soft for 10c. 70m works perfectly.

Route seemed to be heavy on the #0.5 camalot/red alien size to green camalot size.

Bolt is gone, bring your tiny gear!

Glad to hear about the bolt removal. I'll admit that I clipped it on my on-sight, even though I had my black alien racked as the first piece up front on the gear sling. As it turned out, it was one of the few pieces still on the sling when I reached the chains.

bolt chopper has no brain, just un ego.
I do not see any good reasons to chop a bolt placed by FA party at the crux at the place where other options of solid pro is questionable. And plus this bolt had already documented in climbing books and people expecting to find it.
The only reason I can see - that chopper want to spray about it

I climbed this just prior to the chop. I definitely made use of the bolt on the onsight. The mantel crux didn't seem too bad.

Bolt is back! Was glad to see it as the smallest gear I had -- red x4 -- wasn't going to fit. Maybe the smallest Lowe ball would fit? Fun route. You can avoid needing a 70 by rapping to chains at the top of 76 degrees. A little awkward but it works.
