Climb the crack and pass 3 bolts and you will then get to a chockstone for belay anchor. walk off backand to the left.

This is a decent climb thats worth doing if you have already done some of the other routes on the main slab, hit those up first.


To the right of dark passage and the second route to the left of the giant flake. This section is the first wall you see when approaching to the main wall. Down and right from main wall.


small from .5-1 or small to large nuts.

Old school rating for sure. I love this climb, one of my favorites. But, the first few moves are not 5.7. We always thought it went at 5.9.

Not sure why the description mentions passing 3 bolts, this is a 100% gear route. Can use the Dark Passage anchor up top to TR (with a directional).

Singles to #5 if this is your limit, however I didn't use anything larger than a #3 as the crack pinches down in the back semi-frequently.
