The leftmost bolted line on the "right" wall. Identified by 4 bolts beginning about a third of the way up the wall. The opening moves to reach the first bolt are fun, but then the climbing gets contrived as you can basically touch other climbs on either side of you.


4 bolts + some protection for the first horizontal, 2 bolt anchor/rap.

Same start as neighboring left route, try the boulder direct vs. the little chimney section. Nicely placed bolts with a climb that is continuous in grade. No crux, the entire route will have your attention but nicely protected. Bolted anchor with rap rings on top directly above and also suitable for the other routes. If it's crowded at the crag, that might be a problem.

Wanted to sport climb it, but didn't for safety reasons. Ended up setting a TR, which is do-able by scrambling up the left side of Heathcliff, weaving under a rock and making your way around to the top. Fun route.
