Scramble up easy terrain to the base of the headwall and belay from there. You'll encounter the crux just past the first bolt after which fun friction and edges up the steep slab leads to anchors at the very lip of the formation.


A short way left of Hop on Pop on the south face of the formation.


4 bolts, chain anchor

Are Singer and Cardmon very tall fellows? I found the bolting on this route to be very frustrating at 5'10". I could not clip the first (and most important) bolt from the stance, and would not want to make those crux moves without that clipped. The rest of the bolts are similarly high, but perhaps not quite as bad or critical as the first.

A very fun route bolting aside. If less than 6' I would suggest TRing if 10a is even close to your limit.
