Paw your way up a flake of sorts, clip the first bolt and mantle up onto it. Bust out some tricky pulling down, sideways and up on good rock the rest of the way to the anchor. I had a hard time identifying any one particular crux.


The center and shortest route on the main wall. Rap or lower down.


7 bolts and a two-bolt anchor with chains.

Fun sustained climbing with thoughtfully placed bolts.
