Drilling the final bolt on the first ascent. Clim...


Extremely good rock with exhilarating small edge climbing in sections. Although not seriously runout, spicy moves will be found a ways out from the bolts.

Make scary 10c moves up to the first bolt. Do a few 11b moves above this bolt and then clip a few more bolts. From the fifth bolt step back down to about the level of the fourth bolt, move right about 10', and then follow a series of small sharp edges on technical climbing (12a) to a scary standup (11b) that obtains the final bolt stance. From here, 11a climbing tends up and right to the top of Miscalculation.


First route left of Miscalculation.


Bolts. It is possible to belay at the double bolts at the top of Miscalculation. However, doing so makes it a little scary for the person following. It is probably best to continue up on easy ground and belay at the obvious tree (slings, plus maybe some cams to 2").
