Crux for me is right off the ground. Hard start with easier climbing above. Best part of the route is the lower part. Upper part is ledgy and easier. Stick clip is a good idea if you aren't comfortable with the start.


First route directly left of Footloose. Go left when you reach the top of the access trail.

Start takes a little thinking but not hard. From there route goes from ok to not worth doing.

This was an extremely confusing start for me. If you start from the inside corner and work around the arete to the face it is probably the appropriate 5.8 grade but seems contrived. However there was a lot of chalk on the corner and face when I climbed it which would appear to be the start, but doing it this way makes for a very hard boulder problem around V4 or more, which imo makes it harder than Footloose 10a next to it.
