Lean off the boulder and traverse left. Unless you are really good, be prepared for a fall at the 2nd bolt.

The line had to be climbed. How could Vaino have missed it?


It is just left of Couch Fire. Look for the big flake up high.


5 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.

Good climb; nice, smooth stone. Very bouldery!

Fun route. I'd give it another star if it wasn't so short. One tough move getting past the 2nd bolt then fun 5.10- climbing to the anchor....

The big (BIG) flake you come into around the 4th bolt was flexy, scary flexy.
