Follow the line of bolts along the obvious, black, water streak. Excellent climbing on chicken heads and edges will lead you to the anchors.


This is located on the left end of the Quarry Wall. Walk around the boulder pile to find the black streak capped by a large roof. The anchors are located just below the roof.


Six bolts plus the anchor.

Ultra classic route up very featured clean stone. May feel a bit run out to the 5.8 leader...but it is the best warmup of body and mind for the other Schuler testpieces on the Wall of Glen.

What a great climb. The only thing that could make it better is if it was longer. 5.8d.

A little run out, but nothing that should deter a solid 5.8 leader. The R rating is probably most relevant to the fact that you'll be slightly run out over rusty bolts with SMC hangers marinating in the water streak.
