This route is located 15' right of Dragonlance and actually starts on a narrow north-facing wall next to a small pine tree.

Clip a pointless bolt, boulder out the crux, and then clip a second bolt (looking at a grounder) before mantling onto a ledge. Clip another bolt from the ledge and then pull interesting moves (looking at a ledge fall - watch those ankles) onto a vertical headwall past one more bolt and anchors on a ledge.

This is actually a fun route, but the poor bolting detracts from the overall experience; despite that it's still worth a go - just don't fall at the wrong spot!


4 bolts, chain anchors

Bolting is strange. But makes for a fun, heady lead!
