Cool climb


Big moves on small edges for the first half of the route. A great rest about 1/3 way up on a large horn, followed by another at 2/3. The crux comes at the top where opposition movement comes into play. A key jug came off recently making the final moves slightly harder.


Second route in from the right. The route is directly in front of where the trail hits the Dome, and is the first obvious bolted line.


6 bolts

Pumped out and fell at the 6th bolt on my onsight attempt yesterday. The route was dirty and I found the top uninspiring overall, but the first half was a lot of fun.

Fun Fun Fun Fun Fun. Fun tensiony move, at the crux, to a 3(ish) finger sidepull then a good higher left foot to pull to the jug. Get some!

Great route, with some tough moves. Has been rebolted with SS glue in bolts, thanks to ASCA. Couple bolts moved slightly for better clipping stances.
