Moderate climbing through 4 bolts. Anchors are located at top of black streak up and right of bolt 4. After clipping bolt 4 heading directly to the anchors is much more difficult than any previous moves. To stay at the 5.8 grade, either work right to the shallow dihedral, or left to the vertical crack at the top of European Sweetheart. Then top out to reach the anchors.


4 bolts to a two bolt anchor. Bring slings to extend over the edge.

The moves to the first bolt are more like 5.9 than 5.8. Indeed to keep the route at a moderate grade one must go left or right at the fourth bolt. The old guide book states the moves above the last bolt to be 5.11.
