Climb easily past a right leaning flake, a series of ledges, horizontals and mantels, passing 2 bolts to a shallow roof. Clip a third bolt, pull the first shallow roof (crux)to a second shallow roof. Pro at a horizontal (.3/ .4) and mantle around the roof to a slab and a bolt. Step up and left to a bolt shared with Happy Ending, finishing at a two bolt anchor also shared anchor with Happy Ending.

Crux seems like it will be height dependent. Taller climbers will find the grade soft. Shorter climbers will find the grade stout.


10 feet right of Happy Ending.


5 bolts and rack to a #3 camalot. If you're comfortable running out easy terrain (5.7) only a .4 and .3 are necessary (horizontal after the crux). Placing a .75 it below the crux bolt will make the clip feel a bit more secure.

Same deal as Happy Ending. Probably 3 stars when clean. A shared bolt will be added to protect the moves to the anchor.

The crux moves are extremely thought provoking.

Bolt added, gave it a quick scrub.
