Climbing the route after bolt installation.


This is a recently bolted line that was meant to provide an easier lead for those not ready to tackle the tougher stuff. Follow the bolt line past five bolts to a set of rings below a massive block. Be creative when climbing as there are multiple options. The only difficulty will be the final moves to the ledge under the rings. If you are tall, this will be very easy. However, shorter climbers will have some difficulty and the grade is dependent on height. If you are not into mantles, avoid this route.


Starts on the ramp that provides access to the Upper Ledge, above the Top-Rope Buttress.


Five bolts leading to ring anchors.

"Giant steps" is the best way to describe this climb.
