Rated 10a in the Dixie Cragger's Atlas, this route felt a bit harder- mainly because it is so continuous.

Slopey moves gain the first bolt. Then an unending series of sidepulls, brief overlaps, and small feet help you meander up the involved, low-angle face.

This is a great route, but it's no give away.


Just right of a prominent corner. Look for the orange lichen that peppers the route.


Bolts and a two bolt anchor. A 60 meter rope will easily get you down.

All guidebooks rate this a 10a. It is a hard 10a and is not a giveaway. There is a lot of looking around for feet.
