Good route, spicy start


This left-facing corner is an obvious line on John's.

A bouldery crux at the bottom is unprotected for about 15', or use a stick clip to clip the first bolt of Easter Rising. It looks like the holds are positive, but many are slopers. With a stickclip, this climb is well-protected with no unusual risk. If you don't want to clip the bolt, it's only another foot or two until the first good gear placement: a hand size cam. Might feel hard for its original 5.7 grade.


The obvious left-facing dihedral just to the left of the bolted line Easter Rising and right of the bolted line Alberta.


1 set cams to 3", 1 set nuts. Preclip the Easter Rising 1st bolt if uncomfortable at the grade.
2-bolt anchor at the top.
