BETA PHOTO: The route.


This is a great route that climbs a water groove up a pillar. The crux is entering and then exiting a body length, egg-shaped pod at half height.


This is the right-most route on the wall.


9 QDs, C3s, and a #0.75 Camalot.

This is an interesting route for a few reasons. Just below the biggest of the pods, the lack of features forced me to the right into the crack/seam for about 30 feet, and only stepping and reaching far left to clip the bolts. I felt like I was off route, and from what I could tell, climbing the bolt line directly would have been much harder than 5.10. I also did not bring any gear, as the route is listed as sport. Clipping the highest bolt visible from the ground (maybe the 8th bolt?), was a spicy PG-13 clip with 20+ foot fall potential with some bulges to hit on the way if you're not careful.

All that said, it was enjoyable climbing. Bring some small gear I guess for the crack.
