Description 

This route is long, really long! The guide book lists it as 30m but it's about 25 feet longer than the adjacent route listed as 30m. However, you do get a nice rest in the middle.

Start up the steep wall with good holds. The crux is the last couple moves half way up as the pump is setting in. Pull over the ledge and take a rest. Continue up a good flake/crack. When this runs out, traverse right a few feet and finish up very sharp holds to the anchor.

Location 

On the right side of the cave.

Protection 

Draws. Good bolts all the way. Two bolt anchor with rap carabiner.
