A cool route, that could benefit from some traffic and some cleaning at the top. Starts on perfect pockets to the roof. At the roof, there's an awesome move up into the only pocket in the dead horizontal section and a nice lunge to some ok but dirty holds above. From here, the rock quality really declines, most of the feet that I tried to use crumbled. I expect this will get better and will be pretty cool if more people give it a go.


To the right of Virtual Reality.


5 bolts? Ring anchors.

short but sweet... this route is pretty much a boulder problem that starts at about 12 feet off the deck. The rock is still very chossy and dirty, I personally peeled and cleaned several spots, however, I did thoroughly enjoy the throw to get to the jug above the roof... it would definitely be a shame if the only pocket in the roof ever gave out so if you decide to get on this one, climb it gingerly and understand it is still being cleaned (and try to not blow out that pocket).

the carabiner clipped into the bolt that seems to be way to close to the other bolt is there so that you can clip your end of the rope into it on your way down while cleaning, this keeps you into the wall so you can retrieve your draws, it also keeps you from swinging out over the cliff edge... (be cautious of the rope drag though)

never mind, went back today and somebody stole the biner... (super lame it made lowering while cleaning a much more pleasant experience)... sorry
