Ascends the face and broken crack system to the left of After Six and right of Haley's Comet past a single, good bolt. Shares a 2-bolt anchor with Haley's Comet.

Rap 65' to ground.


One bolt, small cams and wires (or TR after climbing Haley's Comet).

Real good route on thin holds, very sustained. I avoided the crack up high, staying on the face.

Too many other people around, so we just toproped the first pitch. Didn't have cams, BITD.

The bolts at the top of the route (midway down the face) could use some maintenance. One looks to be an old buttonhead (?) and the newer bolt has a spinning hangar with a loose nut. It was halfway off the projecting bolt shaft when we came by the anchor!

There are 2 new bolts, one in second dish and one in third, above right. Original 1/4 bolt in first dish not yet replaced, so climb in from left on good rounded holds (no pro) unless you want to run it out on 5.9.

Very cool route on bomber though very slick rock. A bit sporty to the first protection. I find the bolt on the route poorly located and also unnecessary as there is a solid piece about 6' to the left. A bit dicey(ankle breaker) above the bolt moving left to a good jug and good protection.
