Climb past two bolts to the top on quality rock. The route can also be top-roped from bolted anchors.


This route is located on a secluded, short north-facing wall just to the east of the Penguins. To reach the start, hike up over a small notch to the east of Stem Cell Research, looking to the right for a short bolted route. Walk off from the top.


2 bolts protect this short route. Anchor bolts (but no chains or rings) are located at the top.

Did you forget who pointed out the route and was your belay slave? Give a brother credit where credit is due! ;)

Solid rock. The 5.7 stays on the features on the right, I think, or straight up?? Belayer can be in sun in the morning even though the route is north facing.

Rob -

When we put it up, I climbed straight up and drilled from good stances.
