This climb starts up the a thin seam protected by small nuts. Balancy moves up the seams lead to the first bolt and the crux. The crux finishes with a reach to a good ledge and the second bolt. Mantle up and clip a pin. Now the fun begins. Head straight up on big positive pockets (small cam placement) and slightly right to another bolt. Continue up and slightly left on more big pockets and then head back right up low angle rock to an America death triangle anchor.


3 bolts, 1 pin, small nuts and cams to 2", Death Triangle sling anchor

Awesome route...It's been retro-bolted with permission. Now sports 12 bolts...
