Description 

This route is located about 20ft right of Hesitation Blues on the east facing side of the rock. It follows a seam with good finger pockets for the first half and is slaby sport for the second half.

Mostly small gear for the trad portion, QD's for the rest.

Fantastic route. Good mix of crack/slab. Takes gear great.

I agree this is a great route. The first half is a super fun crack in a corner and the top half is friction past bolts to the anchor. I guess it depends on your strengths as a climber, but I felt the top half was much harder and had some very spicy moves. If this route was climbed more, the tiny, micro-stones that coat the surface of the granite might have made my feet stick better - I took a ride after the first bolt!

Oh wow. This route is superb. I've never finger locked, finger jammed, and ring locked so much on one route. Then after that, you get a fun juggy section. Then after that, you get a scary slab section. Do this climb.

This is a really great mixed climb in a secluded spot. Afternoon shade. You can lower with a 70 meter rope - if you don't mind downclimbing just a little bit. Carefull!

Yep - rap or lower with a 70M.
Slab climbing on GOOD rock here, not crumbles like some "classics" and the rest of the climb is great too. Cams and nuts to 3".

I'm a slab weenie and didn't feel the slab was all that spicy on lead. Great route. Get on it.
