Overhanging and very pumpy.

Committing moves right off the deck to clip the first bolt, followed by the crux of the route. Above this, slightly easier yet sustained climbing takes you past three more bolts on a wall that is just beyond vertical. The pump clock will be ticking throughout the duration..


The shady, overhanging wall first seen as you are approaching down to the dome.


4 bolts (3/8"), 2 bolt anchor. A stick-clip could be handy for the less bold, or set up a TR by scrambling up the 3rd class gully to the right.

Great route. The first clip might be a deterrent if you are at your limit. The crux is twofold: first you have to make it above the first bolt, then you have to fight the pump the rest of the way. The bolts look to be in good shape, however, strangely, a couple of the hangers are upside down.

Pat occasionally placed hangers upside down. Glad to hear they've stayed in place. Totally forgot this route existed. It's quite fun. Thanks for the memories.

The angled blocks at the start of this line sound purdy hollow... Other than that, the top moves are fantastic. Excellently positioned route with great exposure.
