Very technical route that ascends the right side of the main wall. Begin by climbing up the jugs/sidepulls up to the big broken out ledge/sidepull. From here the route becomes very tricky. The 2nd bolt can be hard to clip if you don't know where to go (hint: there's a 3-finger pocket just to the right of the bolt). After the 2nd bolt you get some small holds that demand reading the sequence correctly. You'll get a good rest followed by great climbing to the top. Enjoy!


7 bolts, open cold shut anchors
