Tackle the large bulge that has a nice undercling to get to the first bolt. Then find some well-placed handholds up to the crack within a right-facing bulge and some smaller holds to the finish. It is a short route but excellent to start in the 10c field.


This is just to the right of Jay's Route. There are more climbs located to the right of this route, but I didn't get any good looks at them. Once again, they are in the guidebook by Jason Nelson and open for anyone else to add to this site.


4-5 bolts to 2 anchors.

Super good introductory lead for the grade. I would give it a better rating if it were longer.
