This is a relatively short but dicey sport route that has decent hands, but it will sketch out all but the most ballsy. [Find] it about 25 yards to the north of the gigantic roof. [This] can be [top-roped], via two bolts at the top.


This takes about 5 draws.

Climb directly up from the 2nd bolt to the top instead of traversing left. Felt a grade harder than Gun Control.

There is nothing R about this route. It is safe as can be; there are only 4 bolts.

For sure not R, first bolt is well placed given the height of the route. Any 11 climber leading this route will find the bottom very mellow.
