Climb up past the first several bolts to the roof. pull the roof to the inside pink corner climb the corner up to rest ledge. NOTE: The bolt at the large rest ledge is hard to clip for short people. Continue up the next corner to below the main large overhang. Traverse left across the exposed face to the clip at the point. Pull up and over to easier climbing and the shuts above. A super fun line, with some commiting moves.


4th bolted climb from the left.


7 bolts, ring shuts

There is now a fixed draw on the hard clip coming up off the rest ledge.

Good climbing after the birdshit-saturated rest ledge. Rock quality seems to be OK after pulling the initial roof, but was very wet compared to other area routes following a melt or rain.

The description above is actually of the first line right of Firefly/Good Day to Die.

Birds are gone and so is the shit. Great toe hook crux move, makes you believe toe hook roof moves you do in the gym do exist in the wild, but if you miss that, you'll miss the third bolt and be going for quite the ride.
