This is another thought provoking route for the grade. The crux is over the first bolt. There is an optional 1 inch gear placement between the second and third bolt if you are not comfortable with the minor run out. Gain a ledge over the third bolt to a blocky exit.


This route is located directly to the right of Dave And Crissa's Route. It starts on the same talus.


3 bolts to a 2 bolt chained anchor.

A fun route for it's grade. This would be much better if it were longer.
