Much harder than it looks, this route climbs the beautiful panel left of the thunderbird painting. Its possible to stem into the left crack, or grab the crack, but for full value, sitck to the face. Some tiny pockets and sharp crimps split up great rests in the two horizontal breaks. The crux comes getting your feet over the lip of the 6 inch roof at mid-height. Some chossy rock at the top detracts a bit, but overall a great route.


First bolted route encountered on the right wall, or the furthest N route on the W wall.


5 bolts, 2 BA

Really fun climb. Definitely harder than it looks, but it can apparently be made easier by stemming over to the cracks.

I agree with above -- it felt like 10d if you avoid both cracks, but maybe 10b if you use them.
