Very bouldery start to achieve the first bolt. After making the clip, move up to find a "hidden" bolt. You may want to use a long runner for this clip. Move up and right, hand traverse and mantle to a welcome hands down rest. From here, climb straight up the crack to the anchors.

It is also possible to scramble up the back side to top rope this route and a couple .9 variations.


4 bolts and #2 and #3 BD Camalots.

Bring a set of nuts, and a few small to med cams to help protect this guy. A blue alien can be placed to protect the clipping of the first bolt. I like how you can't see some of the bolts until you are eye to eye with them.

You can wiggle in some small at the bottom so I don't know I'd call it PG13. Definitely awkward & pump to get going though. The technical crux after the traverse is very well protected ... luckily.
