The bouldery crux is a long move between crimps before the first bolt. With first bolt pre-clipped, belayer should keep the climber on a tight belay to avoid a crash landing on the boulder below.

The climbing does ease up onto sharp jugs after this. The roof sequence involves a bit of awkward belly-flopping on flat holds, and the climb finishes on a jug-paddle to the anchors.

The climbing is fun, but the rock quality on this climb is highly suspect after the initial boulder start. Expect to kick crumbly flakes of rock onto your belayer and pull carefully on the fragile-looking flakes under the roof. The jugs above the roof are also not entirely solid, and chunks of rock can (and have!) become dislodged without any pulling on the climber's part.


This line starts on a flat boulder and moves through a big flake and a deep roof. This is one of the first lines you see when you finish bushwhacking your way up the hill.


5 bolts + bolt anchor
