This sleepy little route sees surprisingly little action considering its quality and its excellent protection. If you like slabs, then give this one a try! Either lead it or TR after climbing Grafenberg Crack (5.9) or The Diddler (5.10a).

Climb steep slab past bolts and good placements to the crux at mid-height. Puzzle your way up the crux using the small pocket and high crimps then continue to top. One last interesting move puts you pass the final bolt where you move right to the Diddler’s anchors.


Locate bolts on slab twenty feet Left of the obvious the Grafenberg Crack.


Mixed: 3 bolts/1 pin. Easy TR from Diddler's anchors accessed via The Diddler or Grafenburg Crack.
