BETA PHOTO: The route. Much lower angle than it looks.


nice positive ramp of slab.

crux is some fancy footwork in the middle of the route, trust the friction...i would imagine the entire face is 'on' seeing as the bolts run around the centerline.


at your 3 o'clock if you're facing Zoe.


3 bolts and chains

Climbed this earlier this week and it appears to be just 4 bolts and chains at the top.

Hrm. I must've missed the 5.8 moves even though I was dead center for 1/2 the route and then trended right - which is what the chalk was indicating what everyone was doing anyways. The thing can't be harder than a 5.6. Also this one seem to have been settled at 4 bolts to the chains.
