  • Description 

    The first 15 feet or so is the business on this route. Sprint up the 5.9 section and the climbing backs off to easy 5.6 after that. A fun route and good warm up.

    Location 

    This route is on the left hand side of the East face. To the left of the fire pit.

    Protection 

    Trad, no anchors.

    EDIT: a BD #5 AND a #6 can easily be used on the bottom portion, #5 protects the crux right off the ground
