Left-facing corner to a height-dependent crux. Easy to rap off the end of a single 60 and downclimb.


Mostly 3s with a variety of smaller stuff.

This route shares anchor with Silver City. 2 raps to ground or, with 70m, a single rap gets you to 10 feet from ground with some downclimbing. I recommend 2 raps through midway anchor on slabs.

The start of this route has two options. You can start in a techy corner, small but good gear with a bolt 20 feet up (5.11), or ten feet right of this there is a 5.8 variation up dirty blocks to the slab anchor. From here, there is a committing mantle onto the slab. Also, the last move of this pitch has a very reachy move to the ledge that will feel much much harder than 5.10+ for someone under 6' tall. Bring a small piece (0.3 camalot or thereabout) for this move, its a bomber piece here and you need it. Also, a couple #4s for this pitch are also needed.
