Crimpy start leads to the first crux between the first and second bolts followed by a tricky 5.9 ramp and the final crux - an impossible roof on slippery rock. Belay from the flat ground above the trail.


The Owl and Razors Edge to the left. Plumbline to the right


6 bolts to quickclips

"Right of Never Intended"...below and a half dozen routes right of it...

The Owl and Razors Edge to the left. Plumbline to the right.

Nothing Impossible about finish. The starting crux is more difficult. Both are V2ish.

Glad to hear the roof is easier for you! Could you share your Beta for that part? Maybe I missed something when I was up there...

Just get way right of the bolt and match the right foot to the right hand.
