This is a very fun route that climbs pockets and platy flakes up through very featured and lichen covered rock. The route climbs through a small roof about 1/3 of the way up with many options for holds and fun climbing.


This route is the left most route and is located in an obvious corner with a large boulder and pinyon tree next to the belay.


Bolts to a two bolt anchor.

Great route! The little roof is super fun and easier than it looks. Definitely needs some more miles to clean up the little bit of loose rock, but it is well bolted. Classic.
