Big holds over exciting runnouts with a few thank god bolts and some random gear placements is what you'll find on this route. You're constantly on the lookout for gear placements, and they always seem to appear just as you start second guessing continuing. Thankfully, the rock on this route is totally solid. The crux is somewhat height dependent as it's a reachy move. Thankfully there is a bolt right at your face when you make it.


Located on the far left side of the main south face. Begin just to the right of a detached pillar up white grainy rock to a very small roof.


Cams to 1", Nut, 1 set.
