This route does not appear to get climbed much. As of September 2016, there was quite a bit of moss and sand on it and you had to be careful of hollow and brittle holds.

P1 60'. 5.5 - Up a little dihedral in a slot canyon to a slabby traverse. One bolt about 25' off the deck. Small to medium pro.

P2 95'. 5.8 - Hand crack to 4 bolts to more crack and a nice belay ledge. Up t a #3 camalot.

P3 85'. 5.8 - 2 bolts on the face and up a hollow crack. Small to medium pro.

P4 75'. 5.6 - Big ol' acmes and chicken heads. Three runout bolts, although it is not sketchy. Sling some fragile sandstone for extra pro if you want.

P5 65'. 5.10a - Varnish crack followed by 4 bolts and a bulge. Anchors on a big ledge. Small pro.


There are bolts scattered around. Small TCU's up to a #3 camalot will do. Medium nuts will work in a few spots as well, but are not necessary.
