Kevin at the pin.

This route has only 2 bolts and 1 pin. The moves past the last pin to the anchor could result in a bad fall. Be confident at the grade for this pumpy 10.


Walk left of Generation Gap and Balkan Dirt Diving about 15 feet to a lone climb up the right side of a blocky arete. Climb the pumpy face, and dance left past a fixed pin and back right over the roof to the anchor.


2 bolts, 1 pin.

The move above the pin is not easy. The guidebook description made it sound like it would be. If you bring gear, it is not PG-13. Gear up to a #2 Camalot is good. Small cams before the first bolt.

Hanging on to clip the second bolt was difficult for me. As for the roof, once you figure it out it is not that bad. I was able to place a #1 Camalot up and left of the pin. Make a few moves and get a solid #2. Then an easy traverse to the anchor. The #1 at the pin is solid as I took a few falls on it.
