Start to the left of the massive white paint drip. Climb up right to the paint drip folling the diagonal grove in the wall. Then follow the long, shallow groove. Long reach at the end of the climb.


This is on J Wall just up the chossy rock on the left of J wall.


TR only. Two bolts are above the climb, and also there is a tree off which to anchor.

For a fun variation, start on the face just below and to the left of the paint line, then traverse out to the sloping nose-like feature then straight up. The move getting over the nose feels like a 10 for sure.

I agree Tony,
I just sent this today. This is the way we thought the route started. It makes much more intuitive sense anyways. Just to start directly below the anchor (more or less) and go straight up. Definitely harder.
