Mantles and giant knobs rule the climbing down low, but the tiny crack up high is always on your mind. Shallow tips locks take over for the remainder and require some powerful desperate lock offs before some relief just over the lip. Sporty finish.
Start is ~40' to the right of Five and Dime and is capped by a fissure up high. First bolt is low and easily clipped from a block before starting.
Bolts, followed by small gear. ~8 bolts (more than the Reed guide shows). Used a purple master cam up to a #1 camalot. Multiples in small! 'Drop-in' style anchors to rap off. Reed guide says 130', but easily can get off with a 70m rope.

This is the best route at the crag I think. The crux up high has rad movement with really awesome rock.
