First bolted line on the cliff before we started developing the remainder. Unknown FA. Anchor way too far back to be a good TR anchor.


First route right of the gully.

The anchors are in a bad location. This climb should end before the slab about 30' below the current anchor location.

Quite a few unnecessary bolts. Ok climb.

Yeah the end of this route is weird. 2 bolts on super easy slab to anchors set far back. Should end at the bolt before the slab, it gets contrived here regardless. Could probably steal the anchors from above, or just slap another bolt in.

This is listed in the guidebook as 5.10b/c, and while that grade is too generous, it's also not a 5.9 climb. A 10- climb with an enjoyable first half, and seemingly unnecessary second half on slab. Bring something to extend the anchor and 10 draws if you clip all the bolts.
