A straightforward line that is easier than it looks. Makes for a nice warmup for this area. Straightforward climbing with plenty of positive holds and only a couple tricky sections.


This is the bolted line just to the left of Esmerelda. It's between climb 22 in the Foley guide and Esmerelda. Goes straight up the dihedral after some blocky stuff down low.


5 bolts, option of gear down low if the easy runout is not comfortable.
