Difficulty pretty consistent throughout. Crux between the first and second bolt if you stay tight on the bolt line. Shifting right slightly makes it easier.


Just right of Route 1, 2nd route from the left end. Dirty start gives way to good climbing.


4 bolts to chain anchors.

Climbed this yesterday! Very fun, slightly dirty, but worth it! To be honest I think the grade is sandbagged a bit, especially because the moves were not typical of the 5.9 grade. Pretty small holds, some slopers until you come into a nice undercling flake that trends leftward. Very fun movement traversing left using the flake and some awesome longer moves onto good ledges as you exit that segment. The rest of the climb uses small holds again and keeps a consistent difficulty. Try this climb!
