Obvious crack in the middle of the wall. This route is now bolted, though it has been lead with trad gear. There are ample gear placements,but the quality of rock in the whole area is not solid enough to make any safe, trustworthy trad placement. Thus the bolts.


Large crack between 7 bolts for betty and the stalker.


5 bolts, or mid size gear (cams).

I was a little skeptical climbing this with the third bolt being a little reachy to clip. It's actually a pretty lead and has some cool lieback moves involved.

All so true, the top is a lot of fun, but you could sit in that lower section and clean for hours. Be smart and wear some shades if your belaying otherwise you'll get crap in your eyes.

Would be a classic if it wasn't for the choss. Id say its still worth a lead though.
