Great warm-up climb



Crux is moving past the roof on the right. Slightly committed step up on small holds.


Located in the "Impact Zone" in the corner just before the tunnel. Locate the triangular roof about 12 feet up with bolt on the lip.


4 bolts to anchors

Good route for the new leader.

Go right around the roof by the "X" block. Don't be confused by the chalk marks off to the left, it is very difficult to try to clip the 2nd bolt from the left side of the roof (I know, I tried). The "X" block appears to be solid upon trying to move it, and it looks to be a bomber foothold, but I would still avoid it, an "X" is an "X" after all.

Great knee bar on the right side of the roof just where you'll clip the 2nd bolt from. Not entirely needed for such a short route, but come on, everyone loves a good knee bar

Lovely roof moves to the right that are more 5.8ish if you are not used to pumpy climbs. Easier 5.5 top half.
