Start at the top of a mound of dirt and moss. Easy face climbing dappled with shallow cracks until a thought provoking technical finish. Don't pull on the chains without looking for salvation in the moss!


Bolted route about 40' to the right of Hanging Chad (2nd bolted route you will see from where the trail meets the cliff.)


8 bolts?

Climb is ok. Not worth dealing with the belay area

Sport anchor.

Route is mostly 5.7ish, except for crux move in last 2 feet gaining anchor. So, a great TR for 5.7 climbers.

There is some loose rock at the start of this route. Be careful what you pull/step on!

The belay area, as another comment noted, is a hassle. The ground below the route is steep and lacks a solid place for rope or belayer.

My rope got quite dirty from the dust.

The climb itself is ok for the grade but the belay stance makes it kind of pointless. Maybe bring up a shovel and do some maintenance? I'll try to remember next time I head out this way.

Agree on the horrible belay area. Maybe would benefit from a built-up platform like they have at French's Dome.
