Directly below an old eyebolt for a toprope, the route follows an almost direct line on very steep to vertical rock. Some larger holds help, but it is something of an *enduro* type problem. This is a fun, get-in-shape route. There are several different lines that account for the range on difficulty.


The top of the rock can be accessed easily on the SW corner by some 3rd class scrambling. The eyebolt is the obvious anchor for a toprope.


Toprope anchor.

Although this could be done as a highball boulder problem, several of the big pebble-type holds have loosened over the years, and I had one pull out on me several years ago. Fortunately I was toproping, but it popped my knuckle joint out of place and put me out of action for several weeks.
