BETA PHOTO: Found Arch, with Bolts identified, on the Left; Lo...


The crux is in between the first and second bolt.Cliping the first bolt is a strech.Start out by climbing up past a small overlap(very small) then past three bolts and then step left up past two more to the left of some bushes to the anchors.


On the main slabs just before you go down to the lowest point of the cliff. About 5-8 ft to the left of the dike of Groov'n. Locate a clump of bushes about 80ft up it starts directly below these..


5 draws
60 meter will do it if you don't mind down climbing a little.
(NOTE: a 70m makes the rap / lower with only a few feet to spare. R.Hall)

Super fun route with just the right sized runouts to keep you on your toes.

I thought it was the most esthetic route on the cliff. BUT, I am 6ft 1" and did use my "6-inch cheater draw*" to clip the first bolt; it is a pretty high clip!
(Beta: Look for a good foot hold under the small overlap which is hidden totally once your eyes get above the overlap. With this it's still a stretch, but off a good hold, not sloping slab.)

*That's a webbing-draw I have stiffened with Elmer's Glue and backed-up with 7mm Perlon in case the glue affected the webbing.

Great line with great moves!! I think EDGE hit it on the head....just enough spice to keep it interesting and fun. A must do if your in that area. One of my favorite routes there (maybe the best line IMHO)!
