Starts above "Earwig" behind the small pine. Low- angle beginning. It's quite dirty. The last few moves can be kind of fun for some people.


This is the furthest route above "Stairway." It's quite short, about 30 feet. Located 15 feet above "Earwig."


11+ bolts, one every 3 feet average. 2 bolts for the anchor. You could skip a few bolts at the bottom with ease.

This route needs chains added to the anchors, and like with Frog Kisser, I keep forgetting to take some to add. Right now there are a couple of biners someone has left on the route.
Last night I noticed the right bolt of the two anchor bolts moves in its hole a bit. Not sure if this can be fixed, but someone more experience with bolting should probably check it out.
