This one is half boulder problem and half trad climb. The trad part is a big reason it seldom sees any action but it can easily be top roped after leading pretzel logic which uses the same anchor.

Start by stick clipping and pulling through a steep bouldery intro. Clip the piton and figure out the tricky and straight up difficult crux move. Once you have your fingers locked in to the thin crack it's about 5.10 to the top. Really nice crack up top but a bit too short sadly.


Left end of the cliff. 2nd to last route.


1 bolt 1 pin and a few small pieces

I think the only gear you need for this route is a .5 and then a .75 size cam.

that could get you by... I back up the pin with a small nut or cam and then put in a couple after that...

Thanks Lee! I just definitely want to be able to pre-rack for it. It is a bit higher graded than I have put down in the past.
