This route follows a left leaning trend up the center of the wall that faces the highway. Some slings will help keep rope drag down. Clip bolts up a slab and onto steep terrain high on the route. Finish on a anchor past some lose blocks.


10 bolts, 2 bolt chain anchor

Sharp rock through the crux, be wary of your rope. Loose blocks up high, don't kill your partner. This is best cleaned as a back lead or by a follow. The anchor on this could use some TLC so could every single bolt, the bolt protecting the crux is one of the more corroded I've seen in Alaska. It's also upside down.
