Derek putting one of the bombs in.


Follow bolts up orange stain on left side of ruins past the 'one green spot' to chains.


Locate orange stain on left side of ruins, left of large bulge.


Bolted. It is possible to supplement bolts with a few small pieces

1st bolt is actually in the grey rock then follows up the orange stain. It would be easy to accidentally start using the first bolt of "You Call It" as its first bolt is in the stain.

7 bolts with easy ground to chain anchors.

a few small to medium cams are worth bringing in my opinion...nothing bigger than 1 inch

Good rests and stems. Like other routes on this wall, easy at the given grade.

There are a few cool mantle moves. It does get a little run out at the top where there is a small crack, but in my opinion there is no need to bring any cams. Solidly 5.9
