Rockwood is right.


This route is located on the East Rock-West Face, right side. Climb the right curving crack to the right of "Three Bolts Closer To Divorce". This is just to the left of some boulders leaning against the main face. Climb up past a horizontal crack, then a bolt and up fun, easy face to the top. The easy face has no protection and a abundance of holds. Many variations are available in this section.

There certainly are many variations to this line. You can follow the topo shown here; my friend Jason chose to head straight up to the center of the roof and belay from there; I wandered off to the right, climbing from hollow flake to hollow flake and passing a bolt to the right of the roof, because the old guide shows the line going off in that direction. A fun and dicey exploration!

The top of this route will give you a fantastic view of the sunset.

I think the single bolt on the 50 foot slab section was an old button head, and the position for the gear anchor on top was a little weird. There's a rap anchor about 50 feet left of the top of the route.
