Route 13 except I had to traverse to the bolt line...


This is probably the most distinct and fun route in the area. Start at the base of the prominent chimney. The bolts for this route run along the right side. Stem your way up. You need to climb up to clip the 4th bolt (works best of you extend this one), then move down a bit and traverse left. The next small, bulging section is the crux. Follow on through to the easy climbing. There is one more small bulging section to climb through right before the anchor.


Can't miss it. Look for the big chimney. The climb also has the number 13 painted at the start.


Probably 9 to 10 bolts plus a bolted anchor.

When we were there this route was in bad condition. You had to dodge the nats covering the wall down low or if you disturbed them they would get in your eyes, mouth, nose, and hair. Once past there was a large hornet or wasp nest about 2/3 of the way up. Luckily, I was able to traverse right onto the top of route 14.
