This has a tricky start with a high step onto slab. Climb up to a narrow ledge and through a small overhung nostril shaped roof. Above the roof, it is easier moves to the anchor.

This route is probably a bit harder if you are short.


This is right of Grit'er Done.


4 bolts to anchors.

Getting to the first bolt is super sketchy. The start is a tough move and if you fall before the first bolt there is a 10 ft. ledge you may fall down.

There used to be a big rock to stand on at the start. It is a bit tougher without that.

Again, I feel like a wuss or something. If I were to boulder from the ground to the ledge above the nostril, I feel like it would be harder than a V0 (at least the two ways we did it) but a cool climb. Coming out the little roof is a lot of fun!

Climbed this on 5/6/17. There is no block to step on making it a tricky high step start with an ugly fall potential. A stick clip would make it completely benign. I won't venture a rating, but the beta I used to make the move felt harder than 9+.
