This is the obvious and lone sport line on the right side of the crag. The safe way to start this is to get into the crag/dihedral to the left and then clip. Move up and right onto the bolt line as the dome lessens in angle. There are a few cool holds along the crack. You'll get a good deal of rope drag from the top of the featured crag.

You can do a more direct start, but you'll pull the crux (5.8) before you can clip the 1st bolt. You could stick clip this, too.


This is on the right side of this diminutive crag.


6 bolts and a 2 bolt Fixe rap ring anchor.

A good solo, because the namesake plant is 2/3 the way up the route and can be climbed around, but your rope would surely get in it.
