Deb reaches up to the horizontal crack.

This is the bolted line just to the right of the obvious crack system on the right side of this crag.

To start, you can scramble up a ledge system from the right or do a short climb up from the left. A yellow Alien placed from the ground seemed to help make the start feel less scary as the crux move seemed to be before clipping the 1st bolt. Alternatively, a stick clip may obviate the need for a cam. Move up on bulgy terrain with less-than-bucket holds. Once you get the obvious horizontal-ish crack, things will feel more solid, but there is still another mantel or reach move to get your weight off your hands. Continue up a slab, move onto the near-vertical headwall slightly right of the last bolt and anchors.

Oh yeah, another interesting thing about this route is that you can get buzzed by hummingbirds while climbing it...especially if you have something strongly red on. Hummingbirds came by probably a dozen times while climbing this route. Maybe it was the red helmet?


This is just to the right of the obvious crack system on the right side of the southwest face of this crag.


4 bolts, yellow Alien or TCU, 2 bolt anchor.
