One of the best 5.9's in the south


Easy climbing to the first bolt. Continue up the face just to the right of the corner, past 5 more bolts to anchors below the roof. Generally regarded as a safe, easy 5.9.

The many cracks and horizontals in the corner provide an opportunity to lead the route with gear, if you so desire.


A broken, blocky right-facing corner.


6 bolts, anchors

Great, easy, beginner route! Getting to the shuts is a little awkward, but other than that, it's a fabulous route!

Great beginner lead. No longer cold shut anchors, updated to new bolts and chains...but still awkward to get to them.
