BETA PHOTO: I Love My Marine (left) and Direct start (right)


Steep friction moves up the face lead to a scooped out area and a high bolt below an obvious black intrusion. Move left after clipping the bolt, find the hidden edge and then make a long reach (easier if taller) to the black hold and power over the bulge. Higher, progressively easier moves up and left lead into the 2nd bolt of the regular route, which is followed to the top.


Between Banquet and Lunch and 10' right of the normal start.


3 bolts, 1 FP, a couple pieces 1-2.5", slings for tieoffs and a 2 bolt anchor/rap.

Yes the route is directly below the right bolt and up through the dark spot then over to the bolt...

I believe it to be 5.10+....

I took a different take on this and made a high initial step and stuck. It's probably 10+ alright, and a fun problem to mess around on especially if the day is cold since this is a nice, sunny area which is usually protected from the wind.
