Description 

This climb is not bad if you like difficult slab climbing. The crux starts about 5' up and is about 10' long. There is no protection here. You get to good rest holds below a small overlap, and from here, you can clip the one and only bolt. From here up, the climbing is easier but still about 5.9. If you fall near the top, the bolt won't keep you off the ground. I think the bolt is best used for a directional when top roping the climb. This is a real slab climb.

Location 

This is the furthest left route on the Angle Iron Slabs. It starts behind a big pine tree. You climb through branches near the beginning. You can see the single bolt from the start. You can rappel to get down.

Protection 

1 bolt and lots of confidence if led. There is a double bolt anchor at the top.
