This is the steep, thin bolted line just to the right of Chocolate Mice. The rock is very good, and the first few moves are quite thin. One online source says 10b, but it felt maybe a little harder, so I went with 10b/c. I'd like to get more opinions on this.


Bolted line to the right of Chocolate Mice. Can be top-roped after climbing that 5.8 route.


Well bolted.

Thin but well protected. I hadn't been on it previously to appreciate the TR but enjoyed the bolts and leading aspect of it. Spectacular rock.
