This relatively short sport climb starts with a funky steep overhanging section before straightening out. Good holds and rests abound.


Just to the left of The Golden Road


6 bolts to 2 rap hangers (no rings/chains), then 1 more bolt to a chain anchor, so I'd bring 8 draws to get to the chains

Right-hand slopers on the arete in the top-crux are a bit polished and make this a harder route than it probably used to be.

i didnt know what it was when i walked up to it, and onsighted it, but thought it was 10+/11-! tough little 10b, but we love the occasional sandbag around here.

first time tried this one, it felt like a 11, right side of the arete just got nothing and so polished.
but later when i found the best sequence and the beta work for me, i think it comes down to a 10a/b, just one very delicate move at the crux to get the big knob on your left, then its over

dont desperately grab the slick slopers on the right

Whatever sequence I did was far more powerful than balancy. Felt about 10d/11a. Great route.

Quite the polished wall for the crux, I'd bump it a couple grades up it was a bit of a bear!
