Climb big edges through the first 3 bolts. Clip the 4th bolt, get a rest, then climb the crux on small holds. The route lets up some but is fairly sustained to the last bolt. Obviously the crack is off route, but there are some face holds close to the crack that might help toward the top of the climb.


This is between Wild Hops and the hops vines.


Quickdraws, 8 bolts to 2 bolt anchor with chains.

This route more or less follows the original toprope line on this wall. Big thanks to Alex for boltin' it up.

I'm kind of surprised to see that everyone, but me thinks this is 5.10. It makes me feel like a pathetic climber, but hey, that's cool. Just want to put that alternate opinion out there for folks. Great route.

No single move stands out as 5.11 to me, Jesse. Find the hidden jam for a great rest (think thumb down in back of pocket) and the second half is a lot easier.

Two distinct and reachy crux moves provide a decent pump. I was ok at 6', but my partner who is 5'4" really struggled. She can usually OS 10s but couldn't get up this one.
