Climb the green slab starting with thin face followed by jugs.

P1. 5.11a. Angle up and right through somewhat friable rock to an overlap then straight up on juggy holds to the anchors shared with Ocatillo.


This is the leftmost route on the wall.


Nine bolts to chains.

There is a large, very questionable flake that comes up on your left, be careful. This route and the route to the right share a 5.9ish finish that is absolutely RUNOUT. Really liked this climb though, thin and great problem solving.
