Start behind a tree on flat ground. This face route is just to the left of a waterchute/groove.


Three bolts (3/8"). anchor (horizontal crack) takes medium cams.

Decent slab climbing in a seldom visited area. All the bolts have been replaced.

This is a fun and challenging route for the grade - very reminiscent of Loose Lady. Sustained and a little runout, just to keep you on your toes. Great climb!

Easy to TR this route by climbing to the anchors via Mastering Five-Two.

Going right at the top bolt adds a couple of fun moves (10- ?) though it's not really consistent with the rest of the climb.
