Description 

This very engaging route is on a south facing crag adjacent to, and west of, the Olympic Dome. Begin behind an oak tree and make relatively easy moves to the first bolt. Technical, sequential,and powerful moves occur between bolts #2 and #4. The climbing difficulty eases after the fourth bolt. Finish on an overhanging diagonal rail reminiscent of the easier sections on the route "Black Diamond."

Unfortunately, some of the crucial holds consist of loose rock on the lower portion of the route. Otherwise, this is a four out of five star climb.

Protection 

Draws for six 3/8" Metolius bolts and an optional small cam between bolts #5 and #6. Two bolt anchor rappel on top.
