Some sharp holds and big moves lead up to a left hand gaston jug at the second bolt. Easier climbing gains the mid-anchor. After the mid-anchor a couple of scary hollow underclings allow you to reach up either right or left to some edges, terrible feet through here, and eventually up to a sharp slot/pocket on a sloper. From here easier climbing on bigger holds with long moves takes you to the top of the wall.


Second route right of Window Shopping. Stars either off the top of the flake from where you can clip the first bolt or from lower between the flake and the wall at the top of a pillar/point feature.


Bolts to a mid-anchor and bolts to a top anchor.

Doesn't seem like the pinch / undercling at the crux will be around much longer. I felt it flex as I moved past it and was afraid of ripping it off. This one will get alot harder once this goes.

I got on this thing for the first time about 15 years ago or so, and my guide book has an annotation on how loose, dangerous and crappy red tag is. I finally got back on it this year, and was surprised at how well it cleaned up. This is actually a very fun route now.
