  • Description 

    A varied technical face route that we thought harder then its given rating of 5.9. It sees a great deal of traffic and has probably eroded up in difficulty.

    Location 

    The next route over right from Mary Jane.

    Protection 

    Four (4) bolts to its own anchors.

    Would agree that this is harder than its posted rating and will also note that it's a hell of a lot nicer line than many in this area. Worth doing for sure!

    Definitely pretty hard for .10b. A couple somewhat awkward moves down low to very sequential climbing up top. Feel free to weave...
