Crux is high on the first pitch.

The climbing through the roof at the beginning of the second pitch is fabulous.

Even though this is one of only two routes that require gear at the Boneyard. We just couldn't bring ourselves to bolt the crack through the roof and above. So buck up and bring in a light rack for this one.


Goes through obvious square cut roof left of It's a Wanderfull Life.

Starts at a little boulder move with a bolt close to the ground.


First pitch is bolts, second pitch is mixed.
One of each from finger size to a 3 camalot will be adequate. A bomber medium to large stopper can be had at the lip of the roof.

Second pitch makes it worth bringing a light rack with you.

Did this yesterday. Pulling that roof was challenging and interesting. Bring a few medium and larger cams.

this will probably be a 3-star climb once it cleans up...but right now it is DIRTY. still tons of fun though. the multi-tiered stemming roof is awesome.
