This has steep climbing into a small dihedral with several insecure sections. It may feel pretty hard or even desperate for 11b depending on how you climb it.


It is the next route left of "Unnecessary Buffness".


Bolts (I think there were 7 bolts) to a chain anchor.

This route is DANGEROUS. Whoever bolted it is a hack. Runout bolts above a ledgy slab... great.

I don't think this route was dangerous at all unless you're uncomfortable climbing 5.5/5.6 to the first bolt. Whoever bolted it was not a hack. I really enjoyed the route. It required some thoughtful balance up high.

Super fun route! I thought it was a bit alpine-y once you get to the dihedral section. Awkward moves make it tricky and fun, definitely easier for a shorter person. Yes, the first bolt is a bit run out, bring a 50ft stick clip if you're worried about it. It's 5.7 slab to the first bolt.

the bolted climbing isn't runout at all, but you do have to solo a long easy slab to start and get to the bolts, maybe placing a cam or two on the way
