Up the corner then follow the bolt line through sustained moves all the way to the anchors.


At a right facing corner with staked blocks.


Draws. Bolted anchors.

The phrase "steep and dramatic" comes to mind.

Don't believe the G rating on this one. I remember cursing whoever bolted this route as I was on it. Starts off fine, but gets quite run out by the end.

Definitely a little run out for a G rating. Also felt a little hard for 5.9+..felt harder than Wake and Bake (5.10a) at least for me. Also don't attempt this after a rain..all the route is dry except for a slimy wet streak for the last 10' (runout) to the anchor. Fun climb anyway!
