Description 

This route can be a bit dirty, probably from lack of traffic. It's good, and it makes a much better start to reach the second pitch of Sojourners. The two are easily combined in 1 pitch.

Start with some easy moves to reach the first bolt. From here, the climbing continues to increase in difficulty until you make it past the 3rd bolt. Passing the 3rd bolt and reaching the excellent horizontal ledge is the crux.


Location 

Locate the bolt line about 50 ft upstream from the start of Sojourners first pitch.

Protection 

4 bolts, bolted anchors. A .5" to 1" piece of gear can be placed in a horizontal after the 3rd bolt before reaching the large ledge.

Don't pass this beauty up, the rock climbs crazy well and it is a blast to figure out the movement. It is unlikely you will catch this route with chalk which makes the onsight far prouder.
