BETA PHOTO: fun variety of easy moves


A short section of vertical face quickly kicks back to a slab. Higher the wall steepens again, and a mantle gains a small ledge before finishing up an exposed arete to anchors on the shoulder of the formation.

Fun moves throughout it's length with a nice variety of moves and good positioning in the upper crux section.


The left-most route on the wall up the obvious arete.


5 bolts, ring anchors

Although I had no issue with the crux start, my wife (5'5) had difficulties reaching the good knob up by the first bolt. Knowing that she's been a consistant 5.9/5.10 climber, it was hard to believe that the start wasn't taken in consideration for short folks. Seems more like 5.8ish. Rated it 5.8- to be fair for all. Fun climb for sure!

Yes - start is tricky/burly if you're short. Top exposed section is fun - overall, despite the breaks it's a fun route.
