Three pitches over awesome rock.

P1: 5.8 Start just left of a little "cave" and climb over some funky moves and good holds to the belay ledge. Tsunami (5.12a) goes left on the next pitch, Fatal Attraction continues right.

P2: 5.11a/b Follow the bolts up and right from the belay ledge and climb through the shallow fault line in the rock to the next anchors. Pumpy, sustained, and downright fun.

P3: 5.11b Climb up past the anchors to the left traversing seam, suss out the beta on that and it's smooth sailing to the top. Smooth does not necessarily mean easy however!

You can rap straight to the first belay ledge with a 70 and do two raps, if you have a 60 you may have to do three raps.


Between Snake Eyes and Neurotic Vulture. Start just left of a small cave. It is on the part of the wall right of the big roof.
