Aaron groping the sloper rail. August 2015.


Bouldery start off ground, then face crux to roof. Steep, pumpy face moves to ledge and anchors.

Stick clip optional here. Basically an off-the-ground V2 boulder problem to easier face climbing gets you to the second bolt.

This route loses a few aesthetic points due to the glued-on hold or two. Don't worry, this is not a theme at this crag and this route climbs nicely.

Great technical climbing down low on edges, side pulls and gastons. A series of long moves on bigger flat holds leads you to the anchor. Fun route!

Stick clip the first, rather high, bolt. The upper overhang portion is tenuous and committing.

Please consider adding a bolt below the first one, so stick-clipping (or stupid high solo-ing to) the first bolt isn't needed.

The glued-on finish holds fell apart and were cleaned as of April 8, 2016. As of September 2017, rebolted the finish to accommodate changes in the route. Its now longer, more sustained, with a better finish and its own direct anchor.
