Move up and left to the first bolt about 25 feet off the deck the typical Quartz Run Out then head up and then a little left to gain a right trending ramp with the second bolt that you follow to the top. This route used to be a free solo only.


Climb up the middle of the large slab which is about 20-30 feet left of Accidents Will Happen and below the Hobbit.


2 bolts and gear anchor up top. I hip belay for your second isn't out of the question here due to the easy climbing and angle of the wall.

This route should have never been bolted... It's a scramble at best. My stepson Alex did this with us when he was 9 years old. We use to scramble up to get to the upper ledges.

For the belay, BD cams # 1, 2, and 3 can be used. 0.75 and 0.5 sizes can probably be used as well
