Start on the east side of the boulder, climbing right of a dirty crack to clip a bolt that can be seen from the start. Then climb the patina, clipping a few bolts and placing gear in small horizontals. Well protected and fun line. Easier than some other .9s in the area.


The route is a bit left of the line drawn in the 2009 Bingham guide. 70m reaches the base with stretch. A 60 or 50 would likely reach to the saddle left of the start with an easy downclimb.


Bolts and small cams or tricams. Well located chains at the top.

This route is about 120' and very runout, good luck.

Sorry, didn't mean to sandbag. I don't climb much harder than 5.9 and it seemed fine to me.

He meant to say it's very runout if you assume it's a sport route.
